Thanks to the discovery of several century-old menu's, the Plains Dining Room is now offering customers a taste of the past.
Several months ago, the owner, Astrid, received a package from historians who once considered buying The Plains Hotel. Inside were several original menus from the restaurant at The Plains Hotel dating back to 1912 through the 1960s, as well as the liquor menu for the hotel bar when Prohibition ended.
The package also contained information about the hotel’s first chef, Eugene Hansen, including some of his handwritten notes. Hansen was born in Luxembourg and trained to cook in Paris. A photograph made in 1911 found in the box depicts 15 hotel staff cooks dressed in white uniforms and three men in suits.
The restaurant now is called The Plains Hotel Dining Room, in honor of its original name. Enjoy reviewing these original historic menus on a self-guided tour during your stay.
