BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Carnival Cruise Line has tapped sister-brand Holland America Line’s master chef and culinary artist Rudi Sodamin to create Rudi’s Seagrill, a seafood specialty restaurant that will debut aboard Carnival’s Mardi Gras, coming to Port Canaveral on Oct. 15, 2020.

Rudi’s Seagrill, which will serve an extensive selection of seafood entrees and sides, will also feature an array of playful dishes based on the chef’s “food faces” style of art.

“We wanted to offer our guests a new and exciting dinner-time option that is as sophisticated as our steakhouses but takes our tradition of fun to the next level,” said Cyrus Marfatia, vice president of culinary and dining for Carnival Cruise Line.

“Rudi’s Seagrill will feature next-level seafood delicacies and showcase Rudi’s innovative artistry and ‘plates with personalities’ where guests can feast their eyes on a new personable presentation every time they dine – we’re sure everyone will enjoy them.”

“I’ve spent decades perfecting dishes for my restaurants both onboard and ashore, but it has been such a special experience to partner with Carnival to bring this exciting restaurant concept to life,” said Sodamin.

“I believe the quality of a restaurant starts on the plate, so with Rudi’s Seagrill, I want guests to enjoy the food and feel connected to their meals in a fun and engaging way.”

Creatively crafted with keen attention to detail, the menu at Rudi’s Seagrill will feature a selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts presented as food faces including big eye tuna, grilled branzino, seared scallops and apple cheesecake.
