Museum collecting menus
Link - The nation's first cultural institution dedicated to the South's deep and wide appetite for good eating is now building an archive of menus from every Main Street restaurant, dirt road dive, juke joint and grocer, across this most food-centric region.
Decidedly ambitious, the Menu Project is among the first conducted by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans, which opened recently. The museum, in one of the great culinary ZIP codes, is committed to understanding the role of food in Southern culture.
The Menu Project, a partnership with the University of New Orleans, is requesting that menus be sent to Southern Food and Beverage Museum, 1435 Jackson Ave., New Orleans LA 70130. For information, go to southernfood.org.
