Royal Caribbean has selected Michael Schwartz to create new menus for 150 Central Park, the upscale dining room on their Oasis of the Seas cruise ship.
150 Central Park is part of the Central Park complex, which is the centerpiece of Oasis of the Seas, a wonderland in the middle of the ship which includes 12,000 plants and high-end retail shops like Coach.
Chef Schwartz will create new dishes, as well as seasoned favorites from his restaurants in Miami and Grand Cayman and debut cookbook, Michael's Genuine Food: Down-to-Earth Cooking for People Who Love to Eat, such as Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with Carrot Butter Sauce and Mahogany Black Cod with Whipped Parsnip, Baby Bak Choy and Mustard Sauce, and Slow Roasted and Grilled Harris Ranch Beef Short Rib with Roasted Cippolini Onions, Swank Farms Cress and Romesco Sauce.
Chef Schwartz has hand-picked Chef de Cuisine James Seyba, from Michael's Genuine Food & Drink,
to oversee the execution of the new menu and to engage with guests
daily. This is a true departure for chef Seyba, who will make the Oasis of the Seas his home, while being the eyes and ears of chef Schwartz while onboard.
