Part 2 – Viewing the TWA hotel exhibits and memorabilia
Meal Time Aboard TWA Flight 1962
It’s mealtime onboard our flight. It starts with an announcement from the senior flight attendant:
“Ladies and gentlemen, good morning to you all. Breakfast is now being served in the Paris Cafe. Please enter the Paris Cafe for immediate seating. Bon-appetit. Thank you.”
The Paris Cafe was designed to take you back to the Royal Ambassador service back in the 1960s. Upstairs on the mezzanine floor, the Paris Cafe and Lisbon Lounge have been recreated. Let’s take a look at what you would be served aboard TWA flight 1962:
The Influence of Paris Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Jean-Georges is a renown Michelin-rated French chef and restauranteur who was brought in to create The Paris Cafe. He owns and operates 36 two and three Michelin-starred restaurants in 12 Countries. Morse Development CEO, Tyler Morse brought Jean-Georges to the TWA Hotel during the construction phase to oversee the creation and menu of the Paris Cafe and Lisbon Lounge.
