English Is Out, the Verandah Is In Aboard Queen Mary 2

Exactly 80 years after the first Verandah Grill went to sea on Queen Mary in 1936, Cunard Line will launch the Verandah restaurant on board its flagship, Queen Mary 2. The Verandah, a favorite among guests on Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, will replace Queen Mary 2's Todd English restaurant in June 2016 after the ship receives a significant refit.

"We are proud to continue the legacy of our earlier ships while adapting for today's discerning luxury traveler," says Richard Meadows, president, Cunard, North America. "Today's Verandah concept will be a must-experience culinary event on every voyage."

Set within light and elegant dining rooms and and evoking the special personality and flavor of French regional cooking with seasonal influences, impeccable service with attention to every detail will make this an unforgettable dining experience. Available at a surcharge for lunch and dinner, an adjacent bar will be available for pre- and post-meal drinks. The original Verandah Grills were exclusively reserved for First Class guests and were considered the most exclusive dining rooms at sea, on par with esteemed private clubs in London, New York and Paris. The restaurants offered a truly exclusive experience, as well as extra privacy for the rich and famous, including frequent Hollywood stars and royal visitors such as Winston Churchill, Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, and Elizabeth Taylor.
