Holland America Line Pinnacle Grill Named By Porthole Magazine Best Alternative Restaurant

Holland America Line’s Pinnacle Grill restaurant was recently chosen best alternative restaurant in the cruise industry in Porthole Magazine’s 2009 Editor-in-Chief Awards. Porthole Magazine enjoys an industry reputation for recognizing fine cruise products, and this one is no exception. “The Pinnacle Grill offers a level of elegant sophistication unmatched anywhere on the seven seas,” says Bill Panoff, Porthole Magazine’s Editor-In-Chief.

Available on all 14 ships in Holland America’s premium fleet, the intimate, reservations-only Pinnacle Grill is an upscale alternative restaurant featuring distinctive Bvlgari china, Frette linens and elegant Riedel stemware.

The menu highlights Pacific Northwest cuisine and features Sterling Silver beef and seafood prepared in innovative ways. In fall 2008, Master Chef Rudi Sodamin expanded the menu with creations ranging from “Lobster Macaroni and Cheese” to “Colorado Lamb Chops”. Dishes include broiled, troll-caught salmon, broiled or poached lobster tail, cedar-planked black cod with shrimp scampi and the Master Chef’s interpretation of surf-and-turf: filet mignon and jumbo prawns on whipped potatoes with garlic rosemary beurre blanc.

The Pinnacle Grill’s wine list features an extensive selection of premium Pacific Northwest wines, French champagnes, port and dessert wines. It also offers Wine Flights, which let guests sample four selected wines during their meal. Ideal for a romantic dinner for two or elegant dining for a group celebration, guests need to make reservations and pay a modest surcharge of $20 per person for dinner and $10 for lunch.
