MIAMI, Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Premium vacation brand Celebrity Cruises
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, James Beard-featured chef John Suley, 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 San Francisco 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 Jerusalem 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.

Celebrity has partnered with Tasting Table to invite its San Francisco-area
subscribers. Attendees will be entered into a giveaway to win a 7-night Alaska
cruise for two on the stunning, luxurious Celebrity Solstice in 2013. Tickets
are available online at http://celebritycruisespopup.eventbrite.com and are
subject to availability.

As part of Celebrity's "Celebrity Cruises Cares" program, and in support of
Celebrity's commitment to offering its cruise guests extraordinary culinary
experiences, proceeds from tickets go to the Celebrity Cruises Scholarship at
The Culinary Institute of America (CIA), which has a campus in St. Helena,
California. Suley is a 1996 graduate of the CIA's Hyde Park, New York campus.

Earlier this year, Suley and team became the first cruise line chefs to cook
dinner at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City.
