IL Y A QUOI AU MENU?
Do you find that looking at the menu is part of the appeal of going to a restaurant? I mean really looking at the menu, not just reading through a list of various concoctions in optimistic search of the one dish (or dishes) that will stay in your palate's memory for a long time? I mean taking stock of the creative effort put into its conception, formulation and design. As in all commercial venture, the target audience has a lot to do with the restaurateur's choices in that area.
