New York – July 23, 2009: Travelers to England looking for a memorable and “moving” dining experience need look no further than London’s Victoria Station. On September 10, October 29, and November 14 of this year, Orient-Express will be offering “The Dinner” on The British Pullman train departing from Victoria Station — giving diners a chance to experience the magical elegance of Orient-Express while savoring a seasonal five-course “grazing” menu.
The DinnerFrom the first glass of chilled champagne when boarding the train to the last crumb of petits fours, no detail is overlooked. Meals, accompanied by fine wines selected by the sommelier, are prepared using only the finest ingredients and might include mouthwatering selections such as Organic Welsh Salt Marsh Lamb with a Pomegranate Jus and Smoked Devonshire Caramelized Apple with Truffled Welsh Rarebit. Vegetarian selections are available, such as an Artichoke and Palm Heart Strudel and Zucchini Stuffed Roasted Bell Pepper served with a Tomato and Caper Jus. The Orange and Chocolate Tasting Plate will satisfy even the most die-hard chocoholic. The Golden Age of rail travel is further brought to life by the original, lovingly restored, Art Deco-style rail carriages and attentive service of friendly stewards. This is a uniquely indulgent opportunity for travelers to Britain, even those who do not have time for a longer train journey, to get a taste of Orient-Express.
The journey departs from London’s Victoria at 7:30pm and returns at 11pm and is limited to 90 guests. Prices start at US$640.
