I just returned from the Wonder... 9.5 hours ago. Palo began a new menu this week. I am posting images of the menu below, but am not sure it will be readable. Happy to anser any questions - if I can.

OH - don't worry - the Chocolate Souffle is still there!:yay:

One BAD thing: Anyone notice that the famous filet mignon is now replaced by tenderloin?

One GOOD thing: We had the monkfish on the transatlantic, and it is sooooo good. I am very excited to see it as a permanent menu addition. Now if only they will start making peanut butter gelato on the Wonder...mmmmmm.

Thanks so much for posting them! I wonder if they will change the Magic's menu...

I think the Magic's was changed as well. When we were onboard, the monkfish was offered as a special. We praised it highly, and they mentioned that it was going to become a permanent menu item. Since it's on the Wonder menu now, I'm guessing it's there too.

Question: are the pizzas an appetizer? Do people usually order one pizza to share and then each an appetizers/salad?

Lauri

Silly question, but aren't filet and tenderloin the same thing? Tenderloin is the whole muscle, filet is a cut of the tenderloin.

Ilovestitch--the pizzas are to die for. DH and I usually get one to split, and we order one with two different toppings to get to try more varieties. Then we will also get an appetizer and a salad each. (Hey, we love to eat :rotfl: .)

Yes, you both beat me to it. Filet, tenderloin ... ARE the same: filet is cut into the individual pieces normally from the whole tenderloin. It's appropriate to refer to the cut of meat either way. Filet is the most common way, however, to refer to the single portion.

Yes, and no. Filet is the very ends of the tenderloin, the most tender portions. Tenderloin in the middle section, tougher, but by no means tough.

You are correct. But I doubt that the "original" filet from Palo was a true filet mignon either. Here's the word from About.com:

ARTICLE
Filet mignon is considered the king of steaks because of its tender, melt in the mouth texture. A prime filet mignon can literally be cut with a fork. This beef cut can be quite expensive when dining out, but much more reasonable to make at home, especially if you purchase a whole tenderloin.

What is filet mignon?
Filet mignon is French, of course, with filet meaning "thick slice" and mignon meaning "dainty." It first appears in American print in 1899. Filet mignon comes from the small end of the tenderloin (called the short loin) which is found on the back rib cage of the animal. This area of the animal is not weight-bearing, thus the connective tissue is not toughened by exercise resulting in extremely tender meat.

The tenderloin term (also called chateaubriand) applies to the entire strip of tenderloin meat, whereas slices of the tenderloin are termed filet mignon. Filet mignon slices found in the market are generally one to two inches thick and two to three inches in diameter, but true mignons are no more than one inch in diameter and are taken from the tail end. Although this cut is very tender, the beef flavor is proportionately lessened; thus, it is often served with an accompanying sauce incorporating the pan juices.

I have a silly question - Does Palo wrok like the main dining room - meaning if I like the lobster in the main dining room, I can ask for a second serving of it? I know that sounds piggish - and I probably wouldn't ask - but I like to knwo my options;)

Yup! Worked in a butcher shop for many years. Once the "tenderloin" is properly trimmed it is cut into individual "steaks''. Filet mignons! We used to sell the small end(last 8 to 10 inches or so) as one piece and called it a " filet tail". Seasoned and cooked as one large piece rare to med rare in the oven they are AWESOME! I still buy these at a particular store here in So Cal and stuff them with diced mushroom and green onions and lots of my favorite seasoning! So juicy and tender! The reason we sold the end as one piece is because most people like large steaks circumference wise and the small end becomes flatter(less round) and tapers to a point not allowing you to cut those big round Filet Mignons that we are accustomed to! :thumbsup2

I've only been the one time, but I happened to tell the waiter that I couldn't decide about my entree. He asked, "what can't you decide btwn?" I said, "the gnocchi, the tuna, or the linguini" He said, "I'll bring you out some of all of them! And don'tcha know, he did! And this was after having some of the bread and dip, some shrimp pizza and the grilled portabello mushroom appetizer. I literally thought I was going to die. Of course, I asked for just a little sorbet for dessert...so of course he brought us out every dessert on the menu. I was still full the next day. :laughing:

I guess that also answers the above question about getting more of something...I'm not sure you'll have room! ;)

The tenderloin runs along either side of the spine, and is usually harvested as two long snake-shaped cuts of beef. The tenderloin is sometimes sold whole. If the short end of the tenderloin is cut into portions before cooking, that portion is known as Filet Mignon, or the filet, from the French boneless meat (mignon meaning "small" as true mignons are cut from the smaller tail end of the tenderloin).

Just came back from the 3 night Wonder (Aug 30-Sept 2) and ate at Palo's 2 nights! The Quattro Formaggio (sp?) was to die for! We ordered one to split (between 6 of us) and then an appetizer each. We did the same the next night with the Bianco pizza but all of us preferred the first pizza. The veal scallopini was GREAT! The Monk Fish was GREAT! The service was GREAT! (and we did tip accordingly both nights!)

FDA Warning on Mislabeled Monkfish
Fish Believed to be Puffer Fish; Contains Deadly Toxin
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers not to buy or eat imported fish labeled as monkfish, which actually may be puffer fish, containing a potentially deadly toxin called tetrodotoxin. Eating puffer fish that contain this potent toxin can result in serious illness or death.

Tetrodotoxin is not destroyed by common food preparation or storage, such as cooking or freezing. Monkfish do not contain tetrodotoxin.

The product was imported and distributed by Hong Chang Corp., Santa Fe Springs, Calif.

Consumers concerned that they may have purchased this fish should contact their retailer and ask if the product was received from Hong Chang Corp.

The product should not be eaten, it should be thrown away. Care should be exercised in handling the fish, as the tetrodotoxin may be present on the skin and flesh of the fish. Consumers should wash hands thoroughly after handling the fish.

Two people in the Chicago area became ill after consuming homemade soup containing the fish. One was hospitalized due to severe illness.

FDA's analysis of the fish confirmed the presence of potentially life-threatening levels of tetrodotoxin.

Initial symptoms of tetrodotoxin poisoning occur 30 minutes to several hours after food containing the toxin is consumed. Tetrotoxin poisoning is characterized initially by tingling of the lips and tongue. Tingling of the face and extremities and numbness follow. Subsequent symptoms may include headache, balance problems, excessive salivation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Consumers experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate medical care and are encouraged to report their illness to local health authorities. In severe cases, muscles can become paralyzed, and death may follow from respiratory muscle paralysis.

A total of 282 22-pound boxes labeled as monkfish were distributed to wholesalers in Illinois, California and Hawaii beginning in September 2006. These fish were then sold to restaurants or sold in stores. In one instance, the retailer labeled the fish as "bok," the Korean name for puffer fish.

The white 22-pound boxes were labeled in black ink. One box panel is labeled as: "FROZEN MONKFISH GUTTED AND HEAD-OFF" and "PRODUCT OF CHINA." A second panel bears nutritional facts and the following: "Ingredients: Monk fish; Imported by: Hong Chang Corp, Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670; Product of China (P.R.C.)." A third panel has a checkbox indicating the size as either "0.5-1" or "1-2" and shows the net weight as 22 pounds. There are no manufacturing codes on the box. The fish in the box are individually wrapped in plastic bags with no labeling.

FDA allows puffer fish to be imported into the United States only under strict provisions that minimize the risk of the toxin being present in the fish. The recalled fish were not imported in compliance with those restrictions. FDA is examining all entries from the Chinese supplier and will take additional action, if warranted.

We ate there on the 2nd night and enjoyed it so much we booked there and then for the 3rd night!

We both had the new veal dish on the first night and it was fantastic.

Some of you mentioned dining at Palo for dinner more than once. How is that possible? I was told when making my reservations online that you could only dine once for dinner and once for brunch on the four night cruise. Did you get on the wait list once you boarded or reserve it online precruise? I would love the have dinner there more than once if possible so I thank you for your help.

If there are reservations available you can book again. We called from the pool phone on the 3rd night and they said, sure, come on up anytime! Yeah! Just ask once you get on board. They definatly try to let everyone have a shot at going but if they are not full........

Sarnia - I don't know what time you were there but I hate to admit we were they loud ladies (6 moms with no kids or husbands on board with us) on the 2nd night (we were there from 6pm to 10:15pm! - lots of eating, beverage consumption and laughing!). Then it was fireworks and down to the karaoke - fun night. The last night we were just a bit mellower - floating ALL day at Castaway sure wears you out! :goodvibes

We had the REAS package. Our server at Palo gave us the wine list (from the packages, the one pictured on this thread) and said we could choose one bottle, and it could come from either side. We went with the Chianti, as it is one of the few wines both dh & I enjoy. :goodvibes

Boy, I sure am tired of hearing / reading about safety problems with imported goods from China. I wish our government would do something to enforce the safety protections that we have. Perhaps this is why it's so "cheap" to outsource, and import goods...

When she went into the club that night I mentioned to the CM's that we were going to Palo and they asked what time our ressie was for and made a note of it - perhaps to work really hard to make sure we didn't get paged? Thank goodness she absolutely adored the club and didn't want to leave, so we had a great evening - the best of the whole cruise - I think it is what convinced dh to rebook!
