Evenings at the Bistro

Crystal Cruises, well known for their exemplary dining venues and cuisine options (due in large part to Executive Chef Nobu Matsuhisa- who by the way will be on one of their cruises this spring) is expanding one of its most popular venue’s evening hours.

The Bistro, with European-style sidewalk café ambiance, will offer “small bites,” desserts, and “midnight” snacks, along with premium wines and flavored coffees.  The new nightly café will debut in April on Crystal Symphony and June on Crystal Serenity, right after the ships go all-inclusive.

The Bistro is a popular venue for cruisers due to its central location and quick, easy access to continental breakfast, fresh fruits, afternoon snacks, and wide selection of teas and coffee drinks, from morning to late afternoon.

Here’s what guests of the line can expect:

  •  6-8 pm: Charcuterie of cured meats, prosciuttos, and pâtés, plus international cheeses paired with premium wines and champagne.
  • 8-11 pm: Artisanal cheeses, with complementary accompaniments such as truffle honey and fig chutney, plus an assortment of fresh fruits and desserts, including a chocolate fountain and petit fours handmade by onboard pastry chefs, with fine wines, digestifs, and hot drinks.
  • 11 pm-12 am: Late-night munchies such as mini-sandwiches, freshly-baked pizzas, quiche, tandoori chicken, and trendy beef “sliders.”

A perfect solution for those who like a little late-night fare.
