The New York Public Library's Menu Collection

Hosted by

Rebecca Federman is the Culinary Collections Librarian at the New York Public Library. She's spearheading the What's on the Menu? project, an initiative in which the general public is helping the library digitally transcribe its more than 40,000 historical menus. Researchers can browse the transcribed menus online by restaurant, location, date or dish.
