DINING AND SOCIAL POSITIONING FROM DELMONICO’S TO THE FOUR SEASONS

March 31, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Paul Freedman, history professor at Yale, will discuss the way upscale restaurants in New York, beginning with Delmonico’s in the 19th century, changed over the years, while remaining places to display status in various industries or to exhibit social standing. Samples of 19th-century restaurant dishes will be served, including Purée of Potatoes à la Benton, Cheese Crusts, Alligator Pears, Anchovy-butter Canapés, Salmon in Sauternes Wine, and Small Cakes for Entremets.
In conjunction with the Culinary Historians of New York
