Dining in the Department Store


DLM Culinary Center Staff / May 13, 2020 / 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM / $75

Go back in time with Peggy Neary, and Ruth Neely, as they explore the nostalgic department store restaurant. A slower pace of life allowed for lingering over a wonderful cup of coffee. These restaurants bring back fond memories of a special dining experience, serving home-style food that was always delicious. It wasn't unusual for everything to be scratch-made, even the mayonnaise. You'll recall dishes such as tomatoes stuffed with chicken salad, creamy chicken pot pie with homemade pastry, club sandwiches, cakes, and muffins. Often referred to as tea rooms, you may recall enjoying that special lunch at Rike's, Lazarus, Marshall Field in Chicago, or Lord & Taylor's Bird Cage Restaurant and Tea Room in NYC. Our menu will include a variety of dishes we've chosen from books and memories. This menu will be paired with wine.
