Historical Menus Collections Online

It’s pretty amazing to look at historical menus, both for the prices and the actual menu items (how times have changed!). The  LA Public Library and the New York Public Library both an extensive selection of old menus. There are even a few from Chicago, including an intriguing ad for the Chicago Chop Suey Parlor from the 1940s and a menu for the (relatively) recently-closed Barney’s Market Club.
