The menu is defined as the "list of foods available at a restaurant," but a well-written menu is more than a simple list. Your menu can and should be a persuasive selling tool that sets your restaurant apart. A few extra words and a little more description makes a difference, doesn't it? In this course, we'll look at some best practices for writing menu descriptions. This knowledge can come in handy. Menus are updated frequently and chalkboards that many restaurants use to advertise specials are updated even more often. You could easily be tasked with writing a few descriptions yourself.
