Chartreuse is the name of a new specialty restaurant that will be aboard the Regent Seven Seas Explorer, a ship under construction and scheduled for delivery in November.

Regent believes it has a winning concept: Not only will Chartreuse be on the Explorer, but its menu will replace the fare at Signatures, a restaurant on both the Voyager and Mariner, and select dishes will be available at Compass Rose on the Navigator.

The cuisine and ambience is classic French, but “with a modern twist.”

A large panoramic rendering of the restaurant showed an elegant design with an art nouveau-themed decor. 

Every seat will have an ocean view, and the menu will include items such as Charolais steak tartare in a hazelnut-Dijon emulsion topped with Perlita caviar d’Aquitaine, roasted Cevennes rack of lamb with rosemary-mint persillade and sugar snap pea sauce, and poached Brittany blue lobster tail glazed with caramelized lobster roe butter on a bed of Sologne white asparagus and Romanesco. 

The Explorer will also feature Regent’s specialty steakhouse, Prime 7. A concept for a third specialty restaurant aboard Explorer will be revealed in June.
