All a Bord for Titanic-inspired feast in Abu Dhabi
Bord Eau at the Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi, will serve the 10-course menu originally served to the first-class passengers aboard the Titanic on 14 April 1912.
The event will take place on April 14-15 and is second year that the five-star property hosts a Titanic-themed dining experience.
Bord Eau’s dining room will be transformed into the Titanic’s first-class cabin, with two-Michelin-star executive chef Mansour Memarian aiming to transport diners back to the Edwardian era of haute cuisine. Guests, who are encouraged to dress elegantly, will be entertained by jazz musicians.
Back in 1912, the Titanic’s first-class passengers paid the equivalent of US$124,000 in today’s currency for what was to be their last meal aboard the doomed luxury liner.
The hotel’s general manager Thomas Guss said: “This year, Bord Eau is once again set to steer patrons towards an exclusive experience. The last dinner on the Titanic epitomises the finest gastronomic journey worth telling, where guests’ experiences are not limited by their imagination. The savoir faire, sumptuous food and lively entertainment — coupled with a touch of history — are elegantly intertwined to give an unparalleled dining experience.”
