A RESTAURANT had sparked fury for a 9/11-themed menu intended to commemorate the terrorist atrocity.
The Clubhouse restaurant’s dishes included ‘Flight 93 Redirect Crab Dip’ and ‘Pentagon Pie’ as well as 2977 Chowder, in reference to the number of victims who died during the September 11 attacks.
The ‘Patriot Day 2022’ menu was posted online by George White, the manager of the Aquia Harbour restaurant, in Virginia.
Also on the special seafood menu was ‘Freedom Flounder’, ‘9-11 Oysters’ and ‘First Responder Flatbread’.
But he swiftly removed after he face an immediate backlash with one Twitter user branding it “appalling”.
“Hopefully they’ll be properly shamed for this,” wrote another after the menu went online.
Monica Iken, who lost her husband in the attack, also condemned the restaurant.
‘9/11 should not be used to sell food and if one was going to do that the right thing would be to donate to a 9/11 related cause or foundation,” she told the Daily Mail.
White later apologised on Facebook and explained it had not been his intention to offend anyone.
“My intention was to bring attention to that horrific day 21 years ago,” he wrote.
“To honor those who lost so much as well as those who gave everything that day. We will have a new theme tomorrow.”
He has since updated the Sunday menu with a football theme that features ‘Hot Defense’ crab dip, ‘Champs Chowder,’ ‘Fumble Flounder,’ and a ‘Touch Down-tini.’
It comes after a limo hire service in New York has been blasted for using September 11th imagery to promote a discount coupon.
