EATING AND EATERS.
IT IS NOT GOOD FORM TO DO MORE
THAN TASTE AND SIP.
If Invited to n Smart Dinner, Dlno Before
You Co How Dinners and Ranqnets of
Fabulous Cost Are Got Cp and Served by
An American author ami musician
told a queer little story tho other day
that ran liko this :
"Went to tho opera; sat in a box
with two ladies and threo men ; social
leaders; very swell; felt out of place ;
hoard nothing but talk mid chatter;
missed all tho singing and music ; after
tho opera, suppor at tho Waldorf ; ex
pect ed that, of course; went prepared
wry hungry; all tho dainties of tho sea
son on tho table, but nobody ate ; wino
in abundance, all drinking ; more talk
and psssip; wouldn't eat alone, so
starved; not polito to eat nowadays,
I'm told; proper tomiuco along, tasto
a morsel and talk; don't liko it; no
inoro fashionable suppers for me!"
Another man, an habitnal diner out.
"I invariably eat my dinner at homo
before going out todiue. Nobody thinks
of eating at a public dinner nowadays.
It is tho height of ill breeding! At pri
vate dinners with ladies ho who eats
is voted a bore. Ho must sip and tasto
and talk; that's all that is expected of
him. If I didn't eat at homo I'd starve
Perhaps something in recent years
has altered tho belief that tho nearest
way to a man's heart is down his throat.
Hosts used to feed their guests to put
them in good humor, to mako their vis
its agreeable. Everybody at tho tablo
ate and drank and all went merrily.
Better dinners than those provided
today tho world never saw, but they are
not eaten. New York dinners aro supe
rior in many respects to those of any
other city in the world. The peoplo have
money and aro willing to pay for tho
best the market affords, and there is no
doubt that tho New York market is un
surpassed. There are more refinements,
too, at an American entertainment than
elsewhere, more variety. Still it is well
to dine at your own table before going
to tho house of a fashion iblo friend. At
the latter you aro expected to entertain,
not to partake of what is set before yon.
Leave that n tr servants or to the ca
terer. Kich folk nsed to have their own
servants prepare the dinner when guests
were expected, but nowadays every
thing is left tv the caterer. It is so
much less trouble, yon know. Why
worry for clays arranging a dinner for a
dozen or two of one's friends when it
can be better dene by tho caterer? We
have plenty of caterers. Some have
grown rich and protul en the feasts and
banquets given by the fa-hionable set.
When a milliontire wants to give a
dinner he ?csd5 for his favorite, tells
him the number of guests expected, ad
vances a few ideas on the general stylo
cf tho entertainment, names the day
andfcicur, anl says, "I leave everything
to you. " The menu is submitted, and,
if satisfactory, both as to price and dish
es, the preparation goes on.
The entire dinner is prepared at the
establishment of the caterer, after
which, cm the day appointed, it is care
fully packed in hampers and boxes and
conveyed to tho house where it is to be
eaten, iiost private houses aro fitted
with excellent ranges, and on them the
caterer's chefs do the cooking. Positive
ly nothing is left to the homo cook.
The caterer takes entire charge of the
kitchen. He could not be responsible for
the dinner otherwise. The dining room
also is turned over to him, for the din
ner itself is scarcely more important
than the arrangement of tho tablo or ta
bles. Certain unwritten rales aro followed
in this respect. When there are Ioas than
20 persons they are u-ually seated at
cno largo table, rectangular or round;
but when that number is exceeded it is
the custom to use small tables, ad they
can be better served. Sis persons to a
tablo is the rule. The expansion of so
ciety in New York in the last 1 2 years
has been very great, and the size of the
private dinner has increased enormously.
It used to be considered a big thing to
have 10 or 12 guests, but now it is com
mon enough to have from 20 to 60.
Where receptions a few years ago num
bered from 300 to 400 guests, they now
number from COO to 1,000.
The cost of a dinner depends on the
wines and flowers. An excellent dinner
can bo served for, say, 20 persons at 10
a plate, tho flowers will cost about $15
and tho wines from H to $15 a head.
At Mrs. Astor's famous ball, in the win
ter of 1889-90, tho finest entertainment
she ever gave, tho wines ou the sapper
table were very select. Her Stcinbergcr
Cabinet cost ?15 a bottle.
Tho dinner to Charles O' Conor was
one of tho finest ever given in this city.
It was managed by Sam Ward and coet
over $50 a plate. The menus alono cost
6 apiece. Tho decorations were most
elaborate, the tables being literally cov
ered with rare flowers. The wines were
the costliest that could bo had. Some of
Earn Ward's priceless Madeira was
handed around. The guests numbered 50.
Tho d in ner to President Andrew John
eon on tho occasion of his visit to New
Xork, in 1800, cost 100a plate. Loland
Stanford's dinner to Mrs. Grant, about
five years ago, caused a great deal of
talk all over tho country. It was be
lieved that the 18 guests ato from plates
of gold and silver ; that tho tablecloth
was edged with point duchess lace;
that under each wineglass there was a
napkin of the same costly fabric, and
under each finger bowl a Japanese mat
that cost $50, and that the terrapin
were served in individual silver tureens.
