The passengers of the Titanic would have never imagined that the last supper they attended would be replicated by the St. Regis Hotel in Mexico as a way to honor the more than 1,500 people who died in the most famous maritime accident in history.
The next April 14 will mark 100 years of the sinking of the Titanic in the North Atlantic Ocean, after having struck an iceberg on route from Southampton, England, to New York, USA.
The sinking of the liner prevented the St. Regis founder John Jacob Astor from seeing the new hotel being built in New York. Astor gave way to a woman in a lifeboat, according to a news release from the chain.
“For all of us at St. Regis, offer this sumptuous dinner is shown that gives us pride to belong to this legacy,” said Rui Reis, president of St. Regis Mexico City. “This dinner will express our distinction in a tribute to our founder Colonel John Jacob Astor.”
Dinner will be coordinated by the team of Javier Perez Rubio, director of food and drinks from the hotel, along with the hotel’s executive chef, Guy Santoro.
The dinner will consist of:
Poached Salmon with Mousseline Sauce, Cucumbers
Saute of Chicken, Lyonnaise
Vegetable Marrow Farci
Sirloin of Beef, Chateau Potatoes
Parmentier & Boiled New Potatoes
Roast Squab & Cress
Cold Asparagus Vinaigrette
Pate de Foie Gras
Peaches in Chartreuse Jelly
Chocolate & Vanilla Eclairs
French Ice Cream
The dinner will cost per person of 2,400 pesos and 2,000 pesos per child. The St. Regis hotel brand was founded by John Jacob Astor I with the opening of the first St. Regis Hotel in New York City.
