Restaurant menus, as we know them today, are a relatively new phenomenon. Food historians tell us they were a "byproduct" of the French Revolution.
In the 20th century children's menus take their place at the table.
Before the emergence of the restaurant, a menu had always been a list of all those foods to be served during a particular meal as at a banquet today. Cookbooks recommended them and chefs in wealthy households composed them, but all the items on the menu were brought to the table in the course of the meal.
A table d'hote had no menu; the eaters whoever in the course of the meal might be and the food whatever it might be arrived at the same moment. The restaurant's role as a place for the exhibition and treatment of individual weaknesses, however, necessitated a new sense of the menu: In the restaurant, the vagaries of each customer-patient's malady demanded different dietary treatments; no two souls or nervous systems were "sensitive" in the same way.
When ordering from a restaurant menu, the patron therefore made a highly individualistic statement, differentiating him-or herself and his or her bodily complaint from the other eaters and their conditions. By the mere presence of a menu, the restaurant's style of service demanded a degree of self-definition, and awareness and cultivation of personal tastes, uncalled for by the inn or cookshop Restaurants had printed menus because they offered their customers a choice of unseen dishes While a restaurant's fare might not be uniform No longer required to share each of the dishes brought to a table d'hote, but permitted to concentrate on the ones he or she explicitly requested, the restaurant patrons could make preference as much a matter of finance as of taste In a restaurant, the ostentations potlatch of baroque expenditure was replaced by the equally conspicuous and significant economy of rationalized calculation.

Grimod de La Reyniere describes such a meal in his Almanach des gourmands: The first consists of soups, hors d'oeuvres, releves, and entrees; the second, of roasts and salads; the third of cold pasties and various entremets; and lastly, the fourth, of desserts including fresh and stewed fruit, cookies, macaroons, cheeses, all sorts of sweetmeats, and petits fours typically presented as part of a meal, as well as preserves and ices.Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service we offer sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon's fulfillment centers, and we directly pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.
