Caviar Selections and Seasonal Truffle Menu at Remy on the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream

posted on January 16th, 2015 by Salah Chetbi, Dining and Beverage Standards and Consistency Manager, Disney Cruise Line


Today I want to tell you more about the expanded collection of premium culinary offerings at Remy, our French-inspired fine dining specialty restaurant on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. In addition to the brand-new Petites Assiettes experience that I shared with you last week, Remy is offering new ways for guests to taste two of my favorite delicacies, caviar and truffles.

Let’s start with the caviar. Remy’s selections are offered a-la-carte, and options include farm-raised varieties of Osetra and Sevruga caviars from regions in France and Russia. Caviar is served on a platter with blini pancakes, an egg cake and a delicious, creamy sauce, along with a specially selected Krug Grande Année Champagne.

Now to our truffle menu, offered seasonal from November through February. I can think of no better way to celebrate truffle season than with the addition of this premium menu. Remy’s truffle collection includes white Alba and black Périgord truffles, and the rich flavors of this luxurious ingredient are infused throughout the six-course menu.

Exquisite dishes such as gnocchi potato served with a truffle puree and garnished with grated truffle, fresh Maine lobster coupled with lobster bisque and truffle-seasoned Parisian fried potatoes and seared Wagyu beef over truffle glazed baby vegetables are followed by a selection of refined cheeses and a sweet indulgence.

Be sure to stop by Remy on the first day of your cruise and talk to our hostess about dining in this not-to-miss restaurant. You’re sure to be impressed with these new premium offerings, along with our elegant dinner and brunch options.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be telling you more about these offerings, but today I want to give you details on the brand-new Petites Assiettes de Remy, a progressive tasting experience that is the perfect introduction to this fine dining restaurant.

The Petites Assiettes de Remy experience is designed to provide a taste of Remy, where adult guests travel throughout the restaurant to sample small plates of Remy’s gourmet cuisine and fine wine. It is offered during the early evening hours on the first day of each cruise and is hosted by the Executive Chef who serves as an epicurean guide for this six-course culinary journey.

Following the first course of blinis with Californian caviar and Champagne in Remy’s spectacular wine room, for the next four courses guests move through the main dining room where they are presented with superb French-inspired dishes from the restaurant’s seasonal menu, such as grilled salmon with smoked salmon cream and Kobe beef with turnip and potato gratin.

Disney Cruise Line Advising Chef, Arnaud Lallement, Wins Coveted Three Michelin Stars

posted on March 11th, 2014 by Salah Chetbi, Dining and Beverage Standards and Consistency Manager, Disney Cruise Line


Bonjour, Disney Parks Blog fans! I have some very exciting Disney Cruise Line news to share with you. Chef Arnaud Lallement, advising chef to our French-inspired restaurant Remy, was recently awarded a prestigious three Michelin stars for his family-run restaurant L’Assiette Champenoise, near Reims in the Champagne region of France.
Disney Cruise Line Advising Chef, Arnaud Lallement, Wins Coveted Three Michelin Stars

Chef Lallement was the only new addition to the highest ranking in this year’s France Michelin Guide, the world’s most esteemed food guide and restaurant-reviewing institution. The guide’s 2014 France edition lists only 27 restaurants with three stars.

Those of you who have sailed with us on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy have hopefully taken advantage of your exclusive chance to taste Chef Lallement’s world-class cuisine at Remy. Chef Lallement creates and implements menus for Remy, Disney Cruise Line’s first ever premier dining option, alongside Victoria & Albert’s Chef Scott Hunnel.

Twice a year, Lallement personally sets sail and steps into the Remy kitchen to develop new menu items and work with the onboard culinary team. Some of his signature dishes include Maine lobster with paprika curry, salmon with coriander jus and sea bass with herbs crème and sweet vermouth. For dessert, he’s created sweet selections like the choux pastry with praline cream and a green apple tarte tatin with salty caramel sauce.

For those of you who haven’t had the chance to dine at Remy yet, let me tell you more about the fine French dining experience you can expect. Reserved exclusively for adults, Remy features exquisite cuisine, impeccable service and superior, seasonal ingredients sourced from around the world. Dinner at Remy is a lavish and leisurely affair, starting with a signature chilled Taittinger Champagne cocktail made tableside, followed by eight to nine small courses. Remy also offers an elegant brunch on sea days during four-night and longer cruises, featuring a decadent six-course French-inspired meal and a selection of Champagnes to perfectly pair with each dish.

Please join me in congratulating Chef Lallement on this prestigious accomplishment! Next time you’re dining with us in Remy, be sure to have a toast in his honor!
