If you’ve dined at the only Todd English restaurant at sea, you already know the delicious dishes Chef English can prepare.
Now Cunard Cruise Line is going even a step beyond. Cunard will be welcoming celebrity chef and partner Todd English on board the Queen Mary 2’s July 1 cruise.
“Our flagship has the distinct honor of featuring the only Todd English restaurant at sea,” said David Dingle, Cunard Line CEO. “We look forward to having him on board to continue celebrating the ship’s 10th anniversary.”
Known as the Independence Day Celebration voyage, the ship will travel from New York to Boston. While on board, Chef English will develop a new menu with the ship’s culinary team. The menu will debut later this summer.
The Todd English Restaurant on the Queen Mary 2 overlooks the pool terrace. Diners can choose to sit in intimate alcoves and enjoy such specialty Mediterranean dishes as Pumpkin Puree Love Letters, Brilled Tenderloin of Beef, Venison Loin and Porterhouse of Lamb.
For those who want to try his specialties at home, Chef English also will sign copies of his cookbook Cooking in Everyday English: The ABCs of Great Flavor at Home. He also will take part in a question-and-answer session with the ship’s entertainment director.
“I am looking forward to sailing with Queen Mary 2,” English said in a news release. “It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Cunard Line and the beautiful Queen Mary 2 over the past 10 years, and I look forward to celebrating with the ship and meeting guests while on board.”
A four-time James Beard Award winner, English also established one of the best-known restaurants brands in the nation – Olives. He has written four critically acclaimed cookbooks, including the October 2011 release, Cooking in Everyday English.

It was 10 years ago, that the Queen Mary was named by Her Majesty The Queen. Since then, the Cunard flagship has undertaken more than 420 voyages, including more than 200 Transatlantic Crossings and has called at 182 ports in 60 countries.
