The Pyramid Room at the Fairmont Hotel Presents
'The Last Dinner on the Titanic'
--
DALLAS, Feb. 23, 1998 - Dallas gourmets and wine connoisseurs can enjoy one of the finest dining experiences in history on Tuesday, April 14 as The Pyramid Room at The Fairmont Hotel hosts "The Last Dinner on the Titanic." The nine-course dinner is an exact replica of the final meal served in the Titanic's first-class dining room on the fateful night the Titanic went down on April 14, 1912. 

The first-class dinner menu was one of two that survived, according to "Last Dinner on the Titanic: Menus and Recipes from the Great Liner" by Rick Archbold and Dana McCauley. The dinner enjoyed by some of the Titanic's most renowned passengers is based on the nineteenth-century French multi-course meal designed by Auguste Escoffier and will be prepared by Pyramid Chef John Edwards. 

The list of gourmet entrees and wine pairings for the evening included:
 

Last Dinner on the Titanic
Canapes a l'Amiral and Oysters a la Russe with Chablis
Consomme Olga and Cream of Barley Soup with Madeira dry Sherry
Poached Salmon with Mousseline Sauce, paired with Moselle
Filet Mignon Lili and Chicken Lyonnaise with Red Bourdeaux
Punch Romaine
Roasted Lamb with Mint Sauce and Chateau Potatoes with Red Burgundy
Asparagus Salad with Champagne Saffron Vinaigrette
Waldorf Pudding and Peaches in Chartreuse Jelly
Assorted fresh fruits and cheeses

To commemorate the anniversary of the last night on the Titanic, guests are encouraged to dress in period costume or black tie. The evening's music will also reflect memories of the Titanic. The cost is $129 per person, including wines, plus tax and gratuity. For reservations, call The Pyramid Room at (214) 720-5249. 

The Fairmont will also offer an overnight Titanic "stateroom" package priced at $469, featuring the Titanic dinner with wines for two persons, an elegant stateroom (suite) with turn-down amenities and a souvenir Titanic book, and an invitation to the "Captain's Reception," a private, one-hour reception before the dining event. For information and reservations, please call (214) 720-2020. 

Part of America's Family of Grand Hotels, The Fairmont Hotel in the Dallas Arts District has 550 rooms, including 51 suites, and more than 70,000 square feet of meeting and convention space.
