Want to Dine Like You’re On Titanic?
The 100the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is coming up on April 15th, and it seems a lot of Titanic-themed events are popping up. Now Cullen’s restaurant in Houston is offering a 10-course meal for the bargain price of $12,000, which allows diners to experience a meal very similar to what those on the Titanic would have eaten.
That’s a pretty hefty price tag, but up to twelve people can dine in the exclusive room being used for the meal. In other words, if you can get 11 people to join you, it would only be $1,000 each. From there you’re treated to a delicious meal, along with a 1900 bottle of Armagnac brandy. As for the food, diners will receive wine, a beef appetizer, and after dinner cheese among others.
I’m intrigued by the thought of dining like they did on the Titanic, but the restaurant isn’t claiming to be recreating the ship’s menu. Instead, they are serving dishes “similar to those the Titanic passengers were served,” which tells me there’s a lot room for error. I’m probably reading too much into it, but I’m thinking Cullen’s is finding a reason to charge $12,000 and they know if they attach the famous Titanic name to it, people will respond.
At least they’re getting a tasty meal. Would you spend the cash on this?
