The Luncheon

Inaugural luncheons date back to 1897 when President William McKinley had an inaugural meal --- a corned beef sandwich and a coffee. This year, the president and some 200 others, including Supreme Court justices, cabinet members and congressional leaders, will feast in the Capitol's Statuary Hall. Attendees will enjoy 4-oz. lobster tails with New England Clam Chowder Sauce, along with 5-oz. pieces of hickory glazed bison tenderloin with red potato horseradish cake and wild huckleberry reduction. (The recipes can be downloaded.) The cost of the luncheon is included in the $1.2 million budget of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, according to Matt House, a spokesman for the Committee.
