Art of the Menu

Art of the Menu is a blog created by the design firm UnderConsideration that showcases what they call the "underrated creativity of menus from around the world." Locations from which the menus are selected include US cities such as Chicago, IL (14 menus); New York, NY (45 menus, although Manhattan is listed separately, with two menus); Pittsburgh, PA; and Minneapolis, MN. About half of the menus are from locations outside of the United States. As you would expect, the menus vary enormously in typography, layout, and binding. Variations range from a wood panel with a burned-on logo at the gastropub State and Lake in Chicago to the gold-stamped leatherette folder of a menu at Sopra Cucina & Bar, an Italian restaurant in Singapore. Another interesting aspect of Art of the Menu is that it uses the Moveable Type blogging platform. Moveable Type is a system that, in 2001, seemed poised to be the dominant blogging software - until Blogger and WordPress arrived in 2003.
