Dining at Reynolda: Butler's Pantry


The butlers served three meals a day from this pantry. The food, cooked in the basement kitchen, was sent up by dumbwaiter and kept warm in the steam table. After the family sat down, two butlers would begin to serve the food on silver platters. The head of the table pressed a foot bell at the finish of each course to call the butlers in to clear the dishes.
