On the Menu

Last year, I spent some time at an antiques mall, near where I used to have ballet lessons, reading a fine collection of old menus. It seemed to be someone's collection of souvenirs from the 1960s - early 1980s. Most of the eateries were east coast establishments, and I had been to one or two. I know my folks had been to some of the fanciest places, on trips without me and the sib. The graphics brought back memories -- as did the kinds of foods served. Somewhere, I have a fabulous book what food trends were like through the 20th century. It documents the time when a wedge of iceberg lettuce was a fine salad, the rise of the fern bar, and so on.

I remembered enjoying the menu collection when this one came to my attention, via lii.
