The RMS Titanic sank in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912. On the hundred year anniversary, this event was celebrated/memoralized around the world. One of the ways this was done was for restaurants to serve the dinner menu in first class that was served on April 14, 1912. In my city, there had to have been at least 100 restaurants, at a minimum, advertizing that fact. Many of them posted the menu on their ads. When I saw the screen caps of Max and Katie with the trays at the graving dock, that is the first thing that came to my mind. Then seeing the white tents, aboe and below, confirmed it to me. Below is the full menu. The part bolded is the part of that menu that TAR/WRP used in this episode.

We also know they plated some peaches with a red jelly. I really dont know what else they plated in the prep tent. I guess we need a person with some serious culinary training to look at screen caps and see what all was on those tables. Personally, it really doesn't interest me.
In the prep/plating tent, there two seating charts up on the wall. Obviously, the correct pattern for the 2nd and 5th courses, which had dual dishes.
