Los Angeles Public Library Menu Database

I'm not sure if this has been brought up on Chowhound yet, but earlier this year I happened upon this great link to LAPL's online restaurant menu database. It heavily favors menus from local L.A. restaurant history, but there is also a smattering of worldwide menus from San Francisco to Berlin. Once you get past the Library's Boolean search syntax, there's much nostalgic fun to be had...or you can just go down to the Rare Book Room @ the Central Library and drool on the menus in person.

On of my favorite menu designs:
