The 1886

The 1886 Review

Play lord or lady of the manor beneath the Venetian crystal chandeliers of this dining room. Candlelight is reflected on the heavy silver plates and thick linens. Twenty-three-foot-tall windows open onto a garden. In massive gilt mirrors, you can observe yourself or the other diners struggling with a gigantic menu bearing complicated French names that sound terribly pedestrian in their English translations. White-gloved waiters are a bit over the top, but the food is fine, if overpriced. Dress and go for the ambience.
