History is on the menu at Kitchen, which lists the dates that dishes such as mock turtle soup and tournedos Rossini were created. Lobster Thermidor may be from 1894, but it certainly doesn’t taste old. It’s a rich casserole of lobster meat, flour-based gnocchi, and spinach, all bound together with cream and cheese, brightened with mustard and topped with breadcrumbs. Decadent and delicious.
