Remembering the Titanic with an 11-course recreation of the last dinner

Better start shopping for your 1900 period costumes. Guests attending the “Last Dinner on the Titanic” are going to re-live the final 11-course meal in style as part of the St. Louis’ Titanic Centennial Weekend from April 13 – 15, minus the sinking. The dinner will be held at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, April 14 starting with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 6 PM. During the cocktail reception, live bands will perform popular music from the 1912’s. None of that “My Heart will go on” stuff. Dinner, created by Fox Theatre Executive Chef Steven Proctor starts at 7 PM with a recreation of the “First Class” menu from “the actual last dinner on the ship (according to the organizers).” The 11-course meal includes: oysters, poached salmon, chicken lyonnaise, roasted squab, Waldorf pudding, plus complementing wines.
Tickets for the dinner are $500 per person (includes valet parking). Attendees that want to skip the dinner can check out the “Reception, Exhibit and Film” at 6 PM on April 13 at the St. Louis History Museum for $50 or $10 for film only.
