We liked this so much, we requested it again for dinner - and there is a better picture of it on that thread.

Looks incredible! I've seen the menu before and the items were different. Did DCL update Remy brunch menus? Is it still a set menu or do you now choose dishes? And is this on the Dream, or Fantasy? I'm now even more excited as I have reservations for the Feb 23 sailing on the Fantasy :goodvibes

Everything looks wonderful. We've done Remy 3 times for dinner, which were incredible ::yes::. We're planning on doing the the champagne brunch in June when we sail on the Fantasy. After viewing the photos, it's going to be tough waiting for June to roll around. :sad:

Thank you for sharing! These are different to what we had in October on the Fantasy but look so good. And I love seeing Florian again!

I don't know if they updated the brunch menu, as this was my first brunch here - however, the Dis-Foodie-FB group all commented that is was good to see change, so I am guessing "Yes."

It is still a set menu, unlike dinner, where you have choices. I don't know what they do if you don't like something - try to accommodate, I guess.

This was on the Fantasy (Jan 14, 2013).

It will be worth the wait. We are holding a reservation for next January, with hopes of doing more of these. The premium food options have become more of the sailing attraction than port excursions at this point (not that they are mutually exclusive), since we have been in the ports so many times (good problem to have, I know).

Thanks for subscribing. Florian was great.

Florian is directly responsible for our new expensive champagne habit. :rotfl2:

Which one did you develop an affinity for? I actually bought a couple of bottles of Verve Clicquot Yellow label - one for New Year's Eve ($42) and one for sail away from our verandah at our liquor store stop on the way to the ship ($53) based on the Flying Fish Dinner (12/14). It is a problem being exposed to the "good stuff." I don't experiment at $50/bottle - but, apparently, I will BUY at $50/bottle, if I KNOW it will be good. We also repeated the champagne testing (Dream) because we had some newbies - also fun, but I didn't rush out and buy any.

Will be posting much more, including mixology with Damian, various tasting and excursions! Stay tuned.
