Definition of Table D'hote

  TABLE D'HOTE   noun
A caterer's thrifty concession to the universal passion for irresponsibility.
  Old Paunchinello, freshly wed,
      Took Madam P. to table,
  And there deliriously fed
      As fast as he was able.

  'I dote upon good grub,' he cried,
      Intent upon its throatage.
  'Ah, yes,' said the neglected bride,
      'You're in your table d'hotage.'
