The New York Public Library has an amazing archive of 40,000 menus from restaurants in New York and around the world, going back a century or more. They're in the process of transcribing 10,000 menus in the library’s online gallery to turn it into a fully searchable database that can be browsed by dish, beverage or price as well as name and date. So rad. There's an article about it in the Times today. I love these menus below that feature jam and jam desserts!
