Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 4, 2008
In honor of the election year and the impending 2009 inauguration of the next President of the United States, The Renaissance Mayflower hotel is offering a Presidential restaurant special at Café Promenade. From December 5th through January 23rd, Café Promenade will offer a four course menu restaurant special that consists of dishes designed for past Leaders of the Free World--offering guests an opportunity to dine like the Presidents.
The Renaissance Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. hosted its first Inaugural Ball, honoring Calvin Coolidge, on March 4, 1925. The spectacular hotel is set on the road to the White House --a mere four blocks away. Since Coolidge's time, The Renaissance Mayflower Hotel has been the home of many historic meals from inaugural celebrations to state dinners. The Hotel remains dubbed "DC's 'Second Best Address," since President Harry Truman first coined that phrase way back when.
This restaurant special's first course is from Franklin Delano Roosevelt's meal--classic shrimp cocktail--jumbo shrimp poached in seafood Court Bouillon, served chilled over cracked ice with fresh horseradish cocktail sauce. US Senate bean soup from the administration of Herbert Hoover follows. The entrée from the administration of George H.W. Bush, is the very special 80th Anniversary Café Promenade Signature Maryland Crabcakes sautéed jumbo lump crab served with asparagus, waffle potatoes and lobster citrus sauce. Dessert is a nod to Lyndon Baines Johnson--Gateau Diplomate--a creamy combo of sponge cake, fruit and custard. The Presidential dinner restaurant special is priced at $41 per person plus tax and gratuity. Validated parking is available.
The Presidential menu is truly a meal of historic proportions. In this watershed election year, it allows guests of Café Promenade to be another step closer to walking in the footsteps of the Presidents. This hotel restaurant special is ideal for those traveling to Washington DC for the 2009 Inauguration and will add to a surely memorable experience.
