Thanksgiving Menu At Plaza Hotel, New York City, 1899

This was a very ambitious menu. I’ve worked in commercial kitchens. That is a lot of work.

Eating animals was definitely a thing.

Celery was a thing:

  • Salad: Plain Celery
  • Salad: Celery salad
  • Salad: Hothouse tomatoes stuffed with celery
  • Celery braised au jus

Grapes were also a thing:

  • Niagara grapes
  • Delaware grapes
  • Catawba grapes
  • Concord grapes
  • Malaga grapes
  • Tokay grapes

I wonder what “National Sorbet” was.
