Cuts to choose from...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 29 April 2013 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio. could take your pick in one of the specialty restaurants!

Celebrity Equinox boasts 10 restaurants, covering all genres from French to Asian-fusion. The main dining room, Silhouette is playful with white, red and black accents. The two-deck restaurant is open daily for waiter-service breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dinner is offered in two seatings -- one at 6:15 p.m. and another at 8:45 p.m.
Those more interested in a casual dining experience can head to the Oceanview Cafe on Deck 14 aft. There is something to suit every taste in this large, open venue. Plus, there are no trays in the cafe -- you pick up individual white plates and bowls (in a variety of sizes!) surrounding the food stations, and servers are on hand to assist if need be, removing the old-school cafeteria feeling. Tea, coffee and juices are available there all day.
All of the alternative dining venues are located in one handy place -- on Deck 5 toward the stern of the ship. The offerings include Silk Harvest, the Asian-fusion eatery; Tuscan Grille, the Italian steakhouse; and Murano, the popular fine-dining venue. These specialty restaurants charge $30 - $45 per person.

(We did not indulge, as the standard restaurant food was more than adequate.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.

GJC from Kyoto, Japan

Don't know that I could tell the difference. Perhaps I'd have a cruise long enough to try them all....

29 Apr 2013 11:27am

@GJC: L - R: Pork, lamb, and beef ... take your pick.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

Some beautiful cuts of meat here Judy! My mind is busy trying to determine what I would do with each one! Nicely captured! ;-)

29 Apr 2013 1:33pm

@Eric Cousineau: Yes, I can sense your chef's wheels spinning. ;D

franz from Baden, Austria

glutton that i am, i'd go for more than one for sure ... ;-))
10 restaurants ?!? a week's cruise wouldn't be enough to sample them all ... !!!

29 Apr 2013 2:12pm

@franz: We had 11 nights, but as I said, we had plenty of choices, with a specialty each night if you wanted it, in the Silhouette (main dining room), with 4-5 courses each night. ;D

don from United States

An impressive choice of cuts. Fine shot.

Carol from Leamington, Canada

The filet mignon might be something I would choose... I'm not a big meat eater though. But, for those that are... it's a grand choice for them! Great color and detail in this photo Judy..... a diner's delight!!

29 Apr 2013 2:54pm

@Carol: Thanks, Carol ... glad you liked the details ... fun to look at; not so healthy to eat too often. ;(

Rick from Toronto, Canada

It all looks like top quality meat, and your image may even be influencing my choice for dinner tonight ;-)

29 Apr 2013 3:10pm

@Rick: We're having leftover pork tonight, with freshly made cranberry/apple/red-onion/mango/pear chutney. Want some? ;D

Heinz from Hamm, Germany

Ich hätte gerne vom Rind, Medium gebraten. Schöne Aufnahme.

29 Apr 2013 3:34pm

@Heinz: Okay, ich werde Rindfleisch, gekocht Medium für Sie! ; D

Alun from cheshire, United Kingdom

Looking very good, I would have trouble choosing.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

Not being a meat eater, this one does not look appealing to me.

29 Apr 2013 5:19pm

@Ruthiebear: Okay, Ruthie ... I've got some takers for your portion. *grin*

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Looks like some good cuts of meat with hardly any fat to speak of. Looks like you had some delicious meals to speak of. :-)

29 Apr 2013 5:45pm

@Steven: Everything was well-trimmed with the exception of that one huge pork chop. Maybe it was next in line. ;D

Shiva from Berwick, Canada

Nice cuts of pork meat - I am fan of lamb and poultry - I guess because we have it ourselves!! Spoiled !! - Thanks for sharing Judy - regards Monika

29 Apr 2013 6:52pm

@Shiva: I too, would be a fan of "lamb and poultry" if we had our own. Lamb is just too 'dear' in the stores. ;(

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I guess the days of when all the food on a cruise was "free" are days gone by.

29 Apr 2013 11:32pm

@B. Thomas: No, B. ... only the specialty restaurants charged. We never paid extra for any of our food, had wonderful menu choices and service, so didn't see the need to go to the others.

RBL from Oxford, United States

A great butcher's display ~ nice variety for dinner ~ delicious capture!

30 Apr 2013 12:00am

@RBL: Thanks, Ruthie.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Seeing these delicious cuts and reading your description of the food tableau, I can only imagine this as a culinary dreamscape.

30 Apr 2013 12:48am

@Viewfinder: I think my capture was pleasing to you. ;D

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Heck, I wouldn't know what to choose. LOL Nice shot of the butcher at work, Judy.

30 Apr 2013 1:59am

@Jason Politte: Take the butcher's recommendation. ;D

Yair from Israel

I would like them to be medium-rare...

30 Apr 2013 7:33am

@Yair: Mike and I would too. ;D

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Most tempting! Quite rare in our diet! What was your choice?

30 Apr 2013 9:30am

@Japanalia: We eat meat, but not usually with such large portions. In our 11 nights, we had a bit of everything, pork, lamb, beef, fish, shrimp & lobster. ;D

Nance E from Cary, United States

More my speed! I'm a meat gal --- I like mine at a low moo! LOL

3 May 2013 2:30am

@Nance E: Thanks, and it's OK if you don't care for sushi ... glad I could offer something more appealing to you. *grin
