The word menu comes from the French and means “a detailed list.

” The term is
derived from the Latin minutes, meaning“diminished,”from which we get our word
minute. Based on this, perhaps, we can say that a menu is a small detailed list.
For guest=The menu is not more than just a list of available foods. It
also communicates the operation’s image and contributes to the
overall dining experience by helping to build the interest.for
