Legend has it that tucked into the pocket of a steward, a single menu from the final dinner aboard the R.M.S. Titanic survived the fateful night of April 14, 1912. Regrettably, the steward did not.
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking, Restaurant Ca’Bianca and historian Mark Green will recreate portions of the epic last meal served on the night of April 14.
Prepare in advance to loosen your corsets for this seven-course Edwardian eating marathon. On the menu: An amuse bouche, soup course of Consumme Olga (a veal-based broth); Poached Salmon in Mousseline Sauce (a richer version of Hollandaise); a choice of Filet Mignons Lili, Chicken Lyonnaise, Vegetable Marrow Farci; Punch Romaine (a boozy punch); mixed greens with Champagne Vinagrette; and Waldorf Pudding or Peach Sorbet for dessert. Think that’s rich? The original dinner included a whopping eleven courses.
Guests of the special historical dinner are encouraged to dress the part of First Class guests. Throughout the night, Green will share stories of the Titanic’s first and last voyage, toast the passengers, and share exhibits of China and glassware reproductions.
Life jackets optional.
