Louis Cruises today announced a new a la carte dining option aboard the Louis Majesty and Louis Cristal.

The new “Thalassa” restaurants are owned and operated by Christoforos Peskias, a renowned Greek Celebrity TV Chef & Restaurateur, and feature traditional Greek and Cypriot dishes that have been masterfully prepared with a modern twist. Open for dinner only, cruise passengers onboard the Louis Majesty and Louis Cristal can experience this new alternative dining option for the price of $29.00 per person, per meal.

In collaboration with Greek Celebrity Chef Christoforos Peskias, the sophisticated recipes on this new dinner menu showcase the very best of contemporary Mediterranean gourmet cuisine.

By combining authentic Greek dishes with modern culinary techniques, Peskias has created a fusion menu that features fresh, local and exotic Greek and Cypriot ingredients.

A sampling of the dishes offered at Thalassa includes the following: “Fava Santorinis” which is a yellow split pea puree from the island of Santorini that has been enhanced with caramelized onions, truffle oil and grilled octopus; braised lamb shank with an Olive Oil emulsion; marinated chicken souvlaki which is marinated with Limnos muscat wine, lemon, Greek yoghurt and mint sauce and much more.
