LA's Central Library exhibits: "To Live and Dine in LA"

If you relish LA's food culture history, then you must go downtown soon. The Central Library downtown recently opened an exhibit called "To Live and Dine in LA." This exhibit features a showcase of vintage LA restaurant menus, photographs, and short films by local chefs. Stop by and take a look at vintage menus, including The Brown Derby, Atomic Cafe, Ships Coffee Shop, The Golden Pagoda, among many others.

More than just a design exhibit, the show also touches on the political, racial, and economical issues surrounding our food culture.

Go to LAist online to see an assortment of menus (and drool over the low prices) and visit the Central Library's website here to learn more about the exhibit.
