Gourmet Express Lunch
Our Most Authentic Rail Dining Experience
$124-$139 per person- Includes train fare, a multiple course meal, & a welcome taste of wine.
Travel back to an elegant age. Our Gourmet Express Package has been designed to recreate the romance and luxury associated with early train travel by providing both dining and lounge service. These expertly refurbished 1915-1917 Pullman Cars create an atmosphere ideal for relaxation and enjoyment. Experience two different types of railcar - a 1915 or 1917 Pullman dining car and a 1915 Pullman lounge car. Enjoy vintage train travel as it was in the early 1900s when dedicated dining and lounge cars were a staple on long distance train journeys. During long trips, guests would have the opportunity to explore the trains and experience different types of cars, rather than remain in their private quarters.
Meals, crafted by Executive Chef Kelly Macdonald, are prepared in a specially fabricated kitchen car located immediately adjacent to each dining car. As with all our menu choices, the meals are freshly prepared on the train using only the freshest ingredients.
All the rail cars are expertly finished with Honduran mahogany paneling, etched glass partitions, and brass accents. Guests are invited to explore the Train where they may visit the kitchen car to see our chefs in action, our wine tasting bar where our wine expert can help you find a favorite new wine, or the observation deck to enjoy an unobstructed view of the valley.
In the spirit of traditional rail seating, you will share a table with another party on the Gourmet Express Package during our lunch trains. If you would like to ensure a private table, a limited number of tables are available at lunch for parties of two. This premium seating is $15 per person. Private seating is also available in the Champagne Vista Dome, and during dinner trains on the Gourmet Express Package.
