Chef Chad Houser may have bitten off more than he can chew literally. His Café Momentum has been a hit and a very big one at that. But it’s been limited to dinners Thursday through Saturday. Reservations have been a must. That way the incredible staff is not overwhelmed and the customers’ expectations can be met.
Now Chad and Celebrity Cruises are partnering up to serve lunch. Egad! With the swamp of people in downtown Dallas, this could be a daunting undertaking.
But hold on! Don’t plan on lunch there tomorrow. The toe-in-the-water lunch program is only going to happen on Fridays in June.
And how does Celebrity Cruises fit into this expansion? No, they’re not going to have a ship parked out front. They will have Celebrity Cruises lawn club experience in the restaurant’s front patio, plus each Friday “will highlight a unique, culinary destination available on-board Celebrity Cruises.”
According to Celebrity Cruises Dallas/Fort Worth Director of Marketing Letitia Johnson, “Our partnership with Café Momentum is an obvious choice for the Celebrity brand since both Café Momentum and Chef Chad Houser represent the same dedication to the culinary arts as Celebrity Cruises: unique, one-of-a-kind experiences; world-class food; intuitive service and charitable giving. We are thrilled for the opportunity to support such a noble cause for Dallas.”
The first one is Friday, June 5, and will provide a menu “inspired by the Greek destinations of Mykonos, Athens and Santoini.”
According to organizers, no reservations needed — “We are doing this like a carry out service but will have a ‘picnic’ type area to have people stay around.”
Weather guessers are predicting temperatures in the upper 80’s and flirting that 90-mark, so wear you coolest Casual Friday outfit.
