Default Sabatini's

I have such mixed feelings about this restaurant. Sailed on the Golden on 12/8 and first thing after boarding stood in line (45 minutes) to make to bookings at the restaurant. One was for brunch and I can't tell you how great that was! Since I usually sleep late and miss breakfast, I adore brunch. It combines the breakfast that I've missed and the lunch I would like to have.

Sabatini's brunch is glorious. You are treated to a variety of drinks: Bloody Marys, Wine, Mimosas, etc., all included and as many (I assume) as you want. The cold buffet is splendid and overflowing with a huge variety of seafood: Shrimp, Scallops, Sushi, Salmon, Salads...The salmon was so silky and fresh and served with all the usual goodies: capers, onions, chopped egg--totally TDF! Crab legs were split to expose all the lucious meat; total enjoyment, minimum work. Shrimp were SO large and sweetly fresh with a perky sauce and lemon to accompany.

After the largesse of the cold table (and you can go back and back and back), it was time for the more brunch-like eggy things. These are served at table with many flourishes. I had scrambled eggs along with small boiled new potatoes filled with cavier and creme freche (sp). There is a choice of several hot egg-type dishes. This is too good.

The brunch gets five stars and the charge of $15 plus tip seems a pitiful small price to pay for such amazing food.

Nighttime review later. Clue: Stick to the brunch.

Donna,
How I envy you. We are suffering from post cruise letdown and post Christmas letdown simultaneously. Bad planning on our part, for sure. Seems like we are hopelessly hooked on cruising and the intervals between "fixes" seem to be getting shorter and shorter. It has only been a little more than four months since the BI cruise and I am raring to go again.

Take care and let us know how much fun you had.

Jim from VA
