Cleaning out a closet this morning, I came upon a huge box of old menus from the eighties.  It was like opening up a time capsule, and for the next few days I’ll be posting some of these finds from San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, London and France.

First up, a few vintage offerings from:

Another menu from 1984, with wines selected by the great Darrell Corti (note that his name is misspelled on the menu):

fullsizerender-7

fullsizerender-6

Not sure what year this was, but also a Chez Panisse menu

fullsizerender-9

And finally, just because these restaurants are basically in the same wheelhouse, and because this is also a menu from the early eighties (1983), here’s one from London’s River Cafe:
