/PRNewswire/ -- Premium vacation brand
is bringing its award-winning, from-scratch culinary philosophy from sea to land this month in
San Francisco, California
, in the form of the first-ever cruise line pop-up restaurant. Elegant simplicity, modern pairings and abundance of earth and sea are the theme of the restaurant, which will pop up at Stable Cafe in the Mission District.
Diners will enjoy a taste of modern luxury as Celebrity's Director of Culinary Operations,
, and his team, present a menu rich with unexpected flavors, delicate textures, and of-the-moment culinary techniques.
The menu draws on Celebrity's award-winning onboard cuisine, as exemplified by a five-spice crusted Cervena venison loin with celery root fondant, wilted spinach, red cabbage marmalade and lingonberry sauce from the classic specialty restaurant Murano, and the "Strawberry Fields" dessert from the "uniquely unordinary" specialty restaurant Qsine.
Other menu items are inspired by seasonal, local ingredients and flavors in and around
and the Pacific Northwest.
For example, Suley and team will offer a roasted parsnip salad with apple, celery, radicchio, capriago cheese and truffled hazelnut vinaigrette at lunch, and at dinner, a
artichoke veloute with chanterelle mushrooms, mascarpone cheese, Iberico ham and sourdough crouton, as well as a seared Arctic char with "beluga" pasta, chorizo, mussels and a smoked paprika emulsion.
Artful, decadent desserts and locally inspired beverages will complete the experience.

-area subscribers. Attendees will be entered into a giveaway to win a 7-night
cruise for two on the stunning, luxurious
