Chefs at Sea

I had such a great time last night on the Chefs at Sea cruise with Beauport Cruiselines. Everything prepared by Chef Jason Bond of Bondir Restaurant was spectacular.

The Chefs at Sea series will continue each Wednesday until August 15th.

Make a point to book your tickets soon! It is such a great way to see Gloucester’s gorgeous historic seaport while enjoying amazing cuisine by celebrity chefs. It is hard to think of a better way to spend a summer evening.  

Live music, cash bar, and great company are the icing on the cake. 

Beauport Hospitality Group (BHG), a regarded collection of upscale, full-service hotels, restaurants, event facilities and harbor dinner cruises situated along the picturesque North Shore coastline of Massachusetts, is pleased to announce the debut of its inaugural “Chefs at Sea” dinner series aboard its luxuriously appointed 124-foot ship – Beauport Cruiseliner, located at 6 Rowe Square in Gloucester.

Beginning July 11th and running every Wednesday through August 15th, BHG’s “Chefs at Sea” cruises will take guests along for an incredibly scenic and gastronomically satisfying three-hour culinary experience, featuring creatively-themed menus penned by acclaimed local chefs, including: Kevin O’Donnell and Michael Lombardi of SRV, an Italian wine bar and bacaro located in Boston’s hip South End neighborhood, Matt O’Neil of the highly acclaimed Ledger restaurant and the Blue Ox, and Ledger, Jason Bond of Bondir, Rachel Miller from the wildly popular Nightshade pop up, as well as Rory Lee of Moona in Cambridge, whose authentic Eastern Mediterranean mezze has landed the restaurant on every critic’s “must-try” list.

Upon boarding at 6:30 p.m., seafarers will be treated to delicious bites prepared by the featured chef and their talented “crew,” with dinner service commencing as “Cruiseliner” pulls away from the docks. In addition to a satisfying, multi-course meal, guests will enjoy an interactive cooking demonstration, live entertainment, custom décor, dancing, and sightseeing from spacious decks, all while sailing the tranquil waters of Gloucester Harbor. Cash bars featuring a full selection of premium beer, wine and spirits will be available for those who wish to imbibe. Upon request, pickups at the commuter rail is available via Beauport Hospitality Group and hotel stays are recommended at the nearby Beauport Hotel! Tickets are $80.00 per person (tax and gratuity not included) and include your meal, entertainment and a 3-hour scenic tour. All beverages are on a cash-bar basis. Menus are at chef’s whim, and will be released 72 hours prior to the event. Those with allergies, or dietary restrictions should make requests in the notes section of Eventbrite at time of booking and when possible accommodations will be made. Tickets will sell out in advance quickly!

Here is the line up of amazing celebrity chefs, their restaurants, and the charities that some of the proceeds are going to!    To call that a Win, Win.
