Restaurant Menu Reading

Anyone else out there like reading menus?   I love it.   Jeff had said he wanted to go someplace new last night.    Not that we ended up doing that, but I did get on my Urbanspoon phone app and I looked up restaurants where we had never eaten.   I then went to their websites and read the menus.   I have also been looking up menus in Ft. Myers and trying to pick places for us to eat over spring break.   I found a lot of Ft. Myers places yesterday.

Well what do you know!  I think I found my long lost daughterWink

I adore reading menus!  I do it all the time.  Especially before we go on a trip.  I love checking out restaurants and read the menus in the places we are going to visit.  How else do you know if you would like to eat there or not?

Another thing we can thank modern technology for!  Now we can check out menus and prices before we enter the restaurant.  I imagine this eliminates a lot of embarrassing walkouts.

I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for a gulf-coast-style fish shack to open up in the old Braum's building up the street.  They just posted their menu online, and it is so clever, but OMG I had no idea they were going to be that expensive!  So I won't be fighting the crowds at the grand opening after all.

With our night unexpectedly opening up, I just checked out the menus for two places one county over.   Now we just have to decide which one.   I love those types of decisions.

Oh, I love reading menus...

In fact, in one of the QOTD's last week about being spontaneous or a planner, I wrote that I like to savor the thought of going to a new place and looking at the menu online to see what sounds good to order... and I really like to do that when I'm traveling too. 

Tracy, do you remember us with our noses in our phones trying to find somewhere to eat in Ohio?  I think you were on Urban Spoon and I was on Localicious!  We found that Asian place and were all excited but when we got there it was closed... on a MONDAY!

Does anybody ever grab a small paper menu from a restaurant to take home?  I will do that at places where we might like to order take-out like Bob Evans or Applebee's.
