EAT

Finding good inspiration is so exciting. When you find it, you get absorbed. You get excited. Your wheels turn and love to see how others have turned.

A nicely designed menu compliments the establishment, the chef, the food it is showcasing. A well designed menu makes you excited for all of the scrumptiousness to come to the table.

I love the site appropriately named Art of the Menu, which showcases menus from around the world whose designs are creative, cool, and go above and beyond.

So next time you are out, pay attention to the menu. What does it do for you?

At Mammalian in London, a set of chopsticks is used to hold the food and drinks menu

I love the illustrations and colour selection of the Pies N' Thighs menu in Brooklyn...As well as the final touch of using a “great sloppy offset printer to give it that authentic feel.”

How stunning is the use of different materials in the components for  St Hugo  in Barossa Valley, Australia. The wood, brass and paper offer not only an amazing visual experience, but a tactile one as well.

I love the font choices of this menu, all of the white space, and the illustration that educates me at  Whiskey Kitchen .
