[A Meal Blast From the Past]…Vintage Menus

I consider myself a foodie. I love trying new dishes and I love going out to eat. So you can imagine my joy when I stumbled across this archive of vintage (like 1800’s vintage) restaurant menus. Check these out…

How neat are those!? I’m loving the design of the menu covers…it’s like a time capsule into how important the dining out experience used to be. It’s also pretty cool to see what people from years past enjoyed eating – the food sounds so fancy! Besides elegant, the dining experience also used to be cheap! (I know it wasn’t for the era, but still…) I mean $1.25 for grilled lamb?! They sure as hell don’t do that anymore!
