Dover Harbor Chefs' Table

Halloween, Saturday, October 31, 2015



What have our chefs cooked up for Halloween?  There’s only one way to find out---make your way, through our local architectural gem, Washington's Union Station, to the Dover Harbor, our 90-year old luxury Pullman railcar. 

     Join us on Saturday, October 31, 2015, when Dover Harbor hosts a Halloween edition of Chefs’ Table. Our chefs have put together a frightfully good menu to be served in style by our ghoulish but attentive stewards. Eight courses, a sampling of small servings of new and favorite recipes, using local fresh seasonal foodstuffs, artisanal specialties and chef’s whim. A new selection of wines and spirits will accompany the menu.

     We’ll start with an amuse bouche…a single bite-sized hors d’oeuvre accompanied by a designer cocktail.  A surprising soup will be followed by the appetizer course.  Next up, fresh seafood accompanied by a refreshing white wine.  Following the salad, the meat course will be paired with a red wine.  A cheese course will be next with a sampling of artisanal cheeses and one of our newest spirit finds.  Coffee signals the end of the meal but for the “coupe finale,” a trick-or-treat ending to this delicious evening.

     Two extended seatings are being offered to allow you to enjoy this multi-course meal to the fullest.  Choose between a late afternoon Saturday dinner at 5:00PM or an evening meal at 8:00PM.  Please make your reservations early---this special event sells out quickly!


A handling fee will be charged in addition to the fare for online orders.
