Sail along the Seine river and savour flavours courtesy of celebrity chef Alain Ducasse this autumn.
Taking place on-board an all new ship, the 200-passenger, all-electric Ducasse Sur Seine launches this September, and will offer travelers the chance to try lunch or dinner. Options range from a $115 three-course lunch to a $570 five-course dinner paired with wine (and champagne, of course). French-born, Alain operates a number of restaurants including Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester which holds three stars in the Michelin Guide.
For those who prefer traditional pastimes there’s also a $40 option for a sweet and savoury afternoon tea served on the rooftop, accompanied with views of the Eiffel Tower.
The three-course lunch includes items such; Sea bream gravlax, guinea fowl and duck foie gras and line-caught Pollock with shellfish “a la mariniere.” For dessert, enjoy hazelnut and citrus shortbread, oven-baked figs with fig tree ice cream or a Parisian chocolate composition.
The five-course dinner menu features chilled lobster, pan-seared fillet of beef au jus and the Parisian chocolate composition for dessert, served with a crispy praline.
The vessel is a collaborative project between Ducasse Paris, Citysurfing and the Caisse des Dpts. Passengers will embark at Port Debilly near the Tracadero metro stop across the river from the Eiffel Tower for a 90-minute cruise along the Seine that will sail past some of Paris’ iconic landmarks, including the Louvre and Notre Dame.
