‘Menu’ Dinnerware: Where to Buy

When self-proclaimed foodie Tyler (Nicholas Hoult) and his date Margot (Anya Taylor-Joy) take their seats at the extravagantly exclusive restaurant The Hawthorne, special enough to be located on its own secluded island of the same name, before they dive into their $1,200 meal a said things “Don’t eat,” says Chef Slovic, who puts together an ever-changing farm-to-table menu “Taste.”

“Dark Comedy,” which serves as a satire of today’s hyper-pretentious dining culture, serves up dishes that require a real stretch of the imagination to be considered real food. A little frozen seawater, a plate of breadless bread, chicken tacos made with scissors, and lots of foam — all creations of Chef Slovic’s lab-style gastronomy experiment. But if the ghostly food on “The Menu” doesn’t make your mouth water, the lavish dinnerware it’s served on might pique your interest — and the exact same plates featured in the film are available for purchase online.

Italian tabletop stalwart Ginori was used to plate the dinner’s fifth bone marrow, vegetable and beef jus that was also featured on the film’s movie poster. The plates are part of the Orient Italiano collection, which boasts a rich forest green embellished with Florentine-inspired carnations. The classic pieces have a delicately matte antico doccia shape and are handcrafted with Italian porcelain.

As expected, the dinero used in the fictional “temple of haute cuisine” comes at a price. The plates cost $110 each. But if you’re looking to wow guests with a luxurious tablescape anytime soon, you know where to look. Buy Ginori Plates featured on “The Menu” below:
