A Menu From The Titanic Sold For A Staggering Amount Of Money
By TAYLOR HUANG
The first-class passengers on the Titanic were served Finnan haddock and grilled mutton kidneys for breakfast, while the final dinner menu included dishes like oysters and filet mignon Lili. The most expensive ticket for being allowed into these dinner parties was for a three-room suite that cost $2,560 (over $61,000 today).
The last first-class lunch menu — which formerly belonged to Abraham Lincoln Salomon, a survivor of the tragedy — was recently bought for $88,000 at an online auction. Salomon, as well as other first-class passengers, had access to a 10-course meal, which featured menu items like oysters, salmon, chicken, lamb, duckling, and squab.
The menu from the last night of the ship — the journey of which reaches its 110th anniversary this year — included filets of brill and cockie leekie as entrees, as well as Waldorf pudding and eclairs for dessert. There also was a buffet option that had selections ranging from potted shrimps, soused herrings, brawn, and corned ox tongue.
