After lunch, we were going to read on our balcony, but the room stewardess hadn’t made it up yet (don’t know why) and came, so we vacated the place and found 2 lounge chairs on the deck
David’s isn’t named after a person. In keeping with the architect’s/designer’s theme of "art" and “beauty” (some of which falls into the tacky category), the steakhouse gets its name from the replicated statue of Michelangelo’s David which stands at the top of the spiral staircase that is the entrance to this former supper club. I say former, as it used to be a restaurant that had live music and dancing during dinner, but that is no longer the case. Now it is just a steakhouse. This is the only alternative restaurant on the cruise ship ( I don’t consider a buffet a restaurant) and a supplemental charge applies.
We were seated in the upstairs part of the restaurant at a ice intimate table for two. We were given a choice of bread, still warm from the oven. Keith was given a “Chef’s welcome taste” of a tuna tartare and I received a small terrine of potato soup. I was glad to get the soup, as raw tuna isn’t one of my favorite things. Keith had the escargots, which were presented in a clever way—5 were on little puff pastries and one was all by itself in a dish which was filled with a veloute sauce. We both had the lobster bisque, spinach salad and surf and turf. Keith had cheese for his final course and I chose the chocolate sampler. Everything was well done, hot and nicely presented. We were totally full when we left.
