'Downton Abbey' dinner party heads to Bushwick

Just because the show is over doesn't mean millennial Brooklynites won't be interested in a "Downton Abbey"-style dinner party. At least that's what the organizers of the event The World of Downton Abbey are hoping.

On the evening of Saturday, May 21, guests will be transported to the year 1912 and will dine and sip on the foods and drinks the Grantham Family would have enjoyed. The event is hosted by the supper club Edible History. Tickets are $120 plus tax and are available at eventbrite.com.

The menu includes champagne ices and punch as well as classic dishes like haddock in sharp sauce. Here are some more:

The very British dessert eton mess will conclude the dinner. Made with strawberries and cake, meringue and cream, the dessert got its name from Eton College, where it was traditionally served at cricket matches.
