Zakarian’s Restaurants onboard Breakaway:
Earlier this year, Geoffrey Zakarian launched three brand new restaurants onboard new ship Breakaway, each centred around seafood:
- Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian – an elegant seafood dining experience, with a focus on quality ingredients and expert culinary techniques.
- The Raw Bar – focused on crustaceans, curds, cocktails and wines by the glass.
- Ocean Blue on The Waterfront – a more casual dining option focussed on fun and easy fare.
All three venues feature only the freshest ingredients and finest techniques that Zakarian is famed for.
The Iron Chef has coordinated every single element of the restaurant himself – from menus to uniforms, from glassware to utensils.
It’s already been confirmed that Ocean Blue will also be onboard Norwegian’s ship Getaway, Breakaway’s sister ship that launches next year.
