Dinner At The Queen Mary

By Pete Allman

RMS The Queen Mary II at Long Beach. California

The Queen Mary, located in Long Beach, California is one of the main focal points for tourist and locals to enjoy. The 156,000 ton ship which played host to dignitaries and celebrities, presents that history with tours of this historic vessel.

Over the years there have been many improvements at the Queen Mary, one of which is their restaurants. On a weekend, I brought Pat Vegas, of the group Red Bone and his wife Estel to dinner at the Promenade Cafe, located on the main salon floor.

Tony Mc Carthy, the food and beverage manager greeted us. According to Mr. Mc Carthy, business has been extremely good.

The Promenade serves a three course dinner from 4pm until closing. For a mere $32.00 one can choose from Pan Seared Atlantic Salmon or Braised Boneless Beef Short ribs. The Salmon is served with rice pilaf, and seasonal vegetables served in a mustard sauce. The main entrée comes with clam chowder or whatever the soup of the day is and a nonalcoholic beverage of choice. The Braised Boneless Short Ribs are served with garlic mashed potatoes with broccoli with natural jus. Both dishes were very good. As an added portion to our dining, we all ordered a Promenade House Salad, which consisted of mixed greens, tomato, cucumbers and candied walnuts.

As with any good meal, I always like to meet the chef. On this evening we met Chef Brain Stout. Chef Stout spent 27 years at The Fairmont 4 Seasons Hilton. He has that personality to host his own television show, creating some of his favorite South of the Border dishes. With his suggestion we ordered chocolate cake and cheesecake with a cup of espresso to end our evening of gracious dining. The dining experience and the view is well worth an evening of dining and tours at The Queen Mary. For parties and anniversaries call (562) 499-1600. The Queen Mary is located at 1126 Queens Highway.
