Menu from 1913 found during refurbishment

Builders in the English city of Liverpool have unwittingly uncovered a piece of culinary and local history when an intact menu from 1913 fell from the ceiling during a renovation project.

The menu, dated Wednesday January 15 1913 and branded “Yamen Café and Tea Rooms,” was among a number of artifacts discovered in the rafters of the Leaf café on Bold Street, central Liverpool, last week.

Other items included a waiter’s hat with “Yamen” embroidered on the rim, instructions for the English card game of whist and bottles.

Leaf founder and owner Natalie Haywood told CNN Thursday that the discovery was “mind blowing” and almost “creepy” — given that Leaf itself sells speciality teas, like its predecessor.

The items, she said, were found in the rafters of the mezzanine, which she had previously used as an office space and was being transformed into a private event space.

Haywood believes the Yamen Café and Tea Rooms would have been a high-end establishment, given the variety of menu items on offer.

Top American restaurant emerges from pandemic with $335-per-person, plant-based menu

An upscale New York City restaurant is ditching its well-known dishes like lavender and honey-roasted duck and mushroom butter-poached lobster for an all-vegan menu when it reopens on June 10.

As The New York Post reported, Eleven Madison Park (EMP) innovated itself with a new 12-course vegan, which strictly means no animal products, menu.

The Post also noted the French restaurant has made drastic changes since opening its doors in 2006, like redesigning its dining room twice, or when waiters were required to entertain patrons. However, the switch to a vegan menu seems more sincere than a gimmick.

The restaurant now has a farm it manages in Bennington, N.Y., which by commute, is about a six-hour drive away from New York City. Management also owns a laboratory, which

Watch Now – Surprise inside: New owner of Viet Huong focuses menu on Vietnamese cuisine | Entertainment

Review of Viet Huong restaurant. STEPHEN PINGRY, Tulsa World


The name outside remains the same, but what goes on inside Viet Huong, 7919 E. 21st St., has changed quite a bit.

The restaurant has occupied this spot since 1990, when Vietnamese native Cuong “Billy” Tran opened it, serving Chinese-American foods as well as what was at the time the slightly more exotic dishes of his homeland.

Tran passed away in 2017, and two years later his family announced they had sold the restaurant (Tran’s daughters have since opened their own place, Kai Vietnamese, in downtown Tulsa).
