Carnival Cruise Line announced that a new seafood restaurant designed by popular culinary artist Rudi Sodamin will be one of the varied dining options onboard Mardi Gras when she debuts in summer 2020.
The reputation of Sodamin for curating unique dining experiences is expected to lend itself to Rudi’s Seagrill. The restaurant will offer dishes as artistic as flavorful. In addition to a selection of seafood sides and entrees, there will also be a number of dishes presented as playful “food faces” which double as Instagram-worthy art pieces.
The menu at Rudi’s Seagrill is expected to feature a selection of entrees, appetizers, and desserts presented as food faces, such as bigeye tuna, seared scallops, grilled branzino, and apple cheesecake. Guests can choose from a full menu of dishes of which crab cake, broiled lobster tail, salt-roasted prawns, and chocolate truffle cake. There will also be plenty of alternatives for those who prefer non-seafood options.
Situated on Deck 8 between Summer Landing and La Piazza, Rudi’s Seagrill will feature an 80-seat indoor dining room with stylish design elements, warm lighting, and an alfresco area on The Lanai. The new restaurant will offer an immersive atmosphere via Sodamin’s food face-themed artwork front and center and highlights including fish-shaped ‘Gurgle Pots’ making comical gurgling sounds.
Rudi’s Seagrill carries a reservations fee in line with the other full-service specialty restaurants of Carnival.
