While browsing the interwebs today for images, I came across a nice scan of a Don the Beachcomber menu. I clicked on visit page, and found an odd, but delightful, online repository for the New York Public Library.

Located here:
http://menus.nypl.org/

There are over 16,000 menus available, and if you want, you can help transcribe them! The images are decently scanned, but not large enough to print out. For those of you out there that always wanted to have a menu collection, now you can have a digital one! I'm working on downloading all the tiki ones I can find and turning them into PDF's for myself. Perhaps some of you out there might want to do the same!

Here's a short list of what they have available:
Don the Beachcomber 1963
Don the Beachcomber 1965
Trader Vic's 1968
Port's O'Call 1948
Port's O'Call 1961
Moultray's Polynesian 1965
Hawaiian Room 1940
Hawaiian Room 1967
S.S. Mariposa 1969
Hilton Hawaiian Village
Surf Room Royal Hawaiian Hotel 1977
Royal Hawaiian Hotel 1935
Royal Hawaiian Hotel 1939
Monarch Room Royal Hawaiian Hotel 1964
Monte's 1951
Beverly Hills Hotel


The list goes on and on. When you search it brings up both menu's and ingredients/dishes, so you can search by either.

Enjoy!

Thanks, Hale -- I will spend hours being a food nerd over this info. There is a thread on this, New York Public Library Menu Collection, but the links have atrophied, so thanks for the new one.

You know, I got so excited that I forgot to do a search, Professor G.

Well, for the people that haven't seen it before...enjoy!
And for those of you that have, enjoy seeing it again!
