The Titanic's first class passengers paid the equivalent of US$100,000 in today's money for a ticket and that's reflected in the food. Beginning with French oysters and consomme olga with scallops, the meal includes fresh poached salmon in a mousseline sauce, chicken with lyonnaise vegetables and English lamb with mint sauce - all paired with wine. It's awesome but it makes you wonder what other historic occasions can be reduced to a dinner. Soon they'll be re-enacting the Battle of Agincourt.
The menu will be served for parties of eight or more throughout April and May but the opener on April 14 is unique, featuring the actual champagne that drowned on the Titanic a century ago - Heidsieck Monopole Gout Americain Champagne 1907. The bubbly was retrieved from the ocean floor in 1998 (in perfect condition) and costs US$11,000 per bottle. Accordingly, the one off meal costs a monumental HK$15,000/person, while the 'standard' Titanic menu is priced at HK$3,880. Which is nearly enough money to build the Titanic.
A moving meal.
