Love old menus. Among others, have several from Mustards Grill in Yountville. My first time there, I was working at Robert Mondavi Winery. Mr. Mondavi took a group of us out to lunch for secretary's week on a Friday in April 1984. Menu from that era has food on one side, wine on the other, with the wine list being almost entirely Napa Valley (exception for Champagne). RMW Fume Blanc $12 for a bottle, onion rings were $1.95, and Housemade Ketchup was $.50; hamburger was $5.50. Later menu from Michael Oullette's tenure as "general manager and head wine geek". Price of onion rings was then $3.95, ketchup $.75. No wine list. Hamburger - $7.50. Menu states "NO TOFU (at all)". Online menu now shows onion rings at $9.00 (ketchup included), hamburger $15, Fume Blanc at $29. Had lunch with Mr. Mondavi and Margrit at Auberge du Soleil in 1996. and we had Cristal prior to eating. He said that was the wine he wooed her with. So what does one do with all of these old menus...and memories? (And now I want a hamburger!)
