Davenport's Palm Court Grill recreates final Titanic dinner

Dinner on the night the ship went down was superb.

The Titanic didn’t strike the iceberg until 20 minutes to midnight, well after passengers were done dining. And, by survivors’ accounts, dinner aboard the start of the White Star Line was the epitome of grandeur, especially for first-class passengers who supped at the exclusive A la Carte Restaurant, referred to as the Ritz by passengers, on B Deck.

Travelers in second-class, such as Kate Buss, who was en route to meet her fiance in San Diego, also found their last meals aboard the ill-fated vessel satisfying.

“On the night of the wreck our dinner tables were a picture!” Buss said. “The huge bunches of grapes which topped the fruit baskets on every table were thrilling. The menus were wonderfully varied and tempting. I stayed at table from soup to nuts.”

Artifacts from ship – on display in Spokane since October – remain at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture in Browne’s Addition through May 20. Now, diners can complement a trip to the exhibit with a Titanic meal in downtown Spokane.
