I recently went on a cruise on the Celebrity Summit and loved the food. Not because it was super high-quality (though it was better than you'd expect), but because of all the retro foods I've read about but have never been able to order at restaurants because they're so dated.
I'm talking Beef Wellington, Lobsters Thermidor, Baked Alaska, Peaches Melba. So unmodern, but so chic. Here's an overview of the classic-but-passe foods I had on the ship: http://bit.ly/rlQvcj
What are your favorite retro dishes?
