Taste what it’s like to go down in the world’s most famous shipping disaster

Bord Eau guests will be served an opulent 10-course meal based on the original feast served on the Titanic back in 1912

Taste what it’s like to go down in the world’s most famous shipping disaster

Abu Dhabi
restaurant Bord Eau has announced that it plans to recreate the original
10-course menu served to the first-class passengers aboard the Titanic the
night the ship sank in 1912.  

The
restaurant will be recreated to look like the Titanic’s first-class cabin and
offer people “entertainment” and a “touch of history.”

“Back in 1912, the Titanic’s first-class
passengers paid for the ocean voyage’s privately hosted and opulent feast an
equivalent of $124,000 in today’s currency. Unbeknownst to them, they would
face tragedy hours after, with only a few survivors to tell the tale of their
last glorious meal,” the restaurant said in a press release.

“The last
dinner on the Titanic epitomises the finest gastronomic journey worth telling,
where guests’ experiences are not limited by their imagination,” said Thomas
Guss, general manager at Shangri-La hotel, where the restaurant is located.

He went on
to say that the “savoir faire, sumptuous food and lively entertainment –
coupled with a touch of history – are elegantly intertwined to give an
unparallelled dining experience.”

The menu
that signifies the last meals of hundreds of human losses will be allegedly
recreated to “bring back diners to the Edwardian era of haute cuisine,”
according to the restaurant, which is serving the dinner starting at $110.

The sinking of the Titanic is one of the world’s worst
maritime disasters. The liner sank after hitting an iceberg in the North
Atlantic, killing over 1,500 people.
