Description

Noisettes de filet de boeuf, Orloff is called the pièce de résistance on this menu for 140th annual dinner of the Chamber of Commerce of New York. The cover depicts the Great White Fleet, then nearing the completion of its fourteen-month circumnavigation of the globe. The image of the powerful battleship armada conveys the spirit of a period of American history that some have called “The Age of Confidence.” The menu was made by Tiffany & Co.
