My husband asked if I wanted to go to a restaurant down the road from us that offers a very unique menu, and it changes seasonally. We go there a lot for brunch and that menu is generally predictable, but we don’t often go for dinner. They also have daily specials including delicious soup, so I was curious to learn that day’s special, or at a minimum, the current season’s dinner menu items. As little as five years ago I may have pulled out the phone book and called them, or just taken my chances. But it’s 2017 so I pulled out my phone and looked them up. I didn’t find the daily special, but I did find the seasonal menu.
