    Welcome to the Food Thread's Battle of the Menus. Here's an opportunity for all us aspiring restaurateurs who don't have the good fortune to be friends with rich, angel investors to make up our ideal restaurant menu.

    Rules, you ask?

    Fuck rules!

    But you should try to keep things to 35 menu items divided however you'd like. Want 34 types of bourbon and saltine crackers? @Ken will tell you that that is not a real restaurant and then you will secretly cry because you desperately want his approval.

    You don't have to participate but you should read each menu and then tell the author what you loved. Place fictional orders. Be sad that you can't have the food unless you cook it yourself or go to the place the menu item was plagiarized from.

    In conclusion, love you guys.

    I'll format this a bit better when I get a chance.

    Flipping between doing work and this, haha.

    My table is ordering the Cuban egg rolls to start and then moving to the Korean BBQ Sliders as another appetizer. Probably the Mexican lasagna too. For dinner I'd have the pork tenderloin or the flat iron steak. Your whole menu sounds amazing. I love how chili pepper-centric it is.

    Oh, I'll be having that German chocolate beer cake too.

    On a separate visit, I'd definitely get the pretzel appetizer and the brisket sandwich just for myself.

    Great menu!

    My table would start with the calamari and the bone marrow. Both of which sound fantastic. I love the chimichurri and remoulade flavors you have. I'm ordering a frisee salad for myself, I love frisee with bacon/pancetta and a poached egg, as you can see from my menu. I'm having the duck as my main course. I'm also hoping the table splits an order of the wild boar ragu as that sounds divine. Is the mushroom incorporated into the pasta dough or how does that work?

    People are writing fictional menus. Up to 35 total items in any order or shape or way that you want. Can include cocktails, tapas, raw bar, whatever. Then we're discussing different ideas and then we'll vote on the best sounding restaurant.
