Eat it Here, then Eat it There
If you love Fig and Olive at Fashion Island in Orange County, then you’ll love the fine dining exclusivity of Luminae onboard Celebrity Cruises, a suite-class restaurant that specializes in locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients.
Chic Dining in Orange County
If you live in southern California and haven’t dined at Fig and Olive yet, you should quickly get yourself over to Fashion Island in Newport Beach (in which Fig and Olive is located) and seat yourself at one of the restaurant’s elegant tables. While dining — which you can choose to do either indoors our outside on the patio — you’ll be surrounded by a French Riviera garden ambiance with olive trees and flowers planted all around.
The menu features some of the best dishes from the Mediterranean region with creative twists. Dine on Tuna Crudo from the raw bar, paella del mar or zucchini blossom and goat cheese ravioli from the pasta menu, or Provence roasted chicken or veal milanese from the poultry and meat menu.
It’s an upscale dining experience in one of California’s ritziest neighborhoods and you’ll feel like a million bucks while dining there — as will your tastebuds. Fig and Olive is located at 151 Newport Center Drive in the Fashion Island shopping complex. You can reach the restaurant for reservations or questions at 949-877-3005.
Luminae: Exclusive Gourmet Dining at Sea
Luminae is the latest restaurant onboard Celebrity Cruises’ fleet of ships and can be found on every single Celebrity ship…if you’re staying in a suite. That’s right, Luminae has an air of exclusivity as it is only available for dining to guests staying in Celebrity Cruises’ popular Suite Class of staterooms.
Dining at Luminae is a modern, sophisticated affair with white and gold decor on the tables and walls, and large picture windows highlighting the rippling ocean and passing scenery and providing an sunlit dining experience throughout the day. Luminae is complimentary for Suite Class guests who can choose to eat there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu at Luminae consists of gourmet cuisine with menu items you can’t find anywhere else onboard.
Sample entrees you can enjoy at Luminae include roasted lamb loin with Merguez sausage, marinated cucumber, and herb yogurt; Maine lobster tagliatelle with roasted artichokes, tomato and lemon confit, and bread crumbs; and Cote de Boeuf with roasted root vegetables and bearnaise sauce. Delicious appetizers and desserts can also be enjoyed.
