Accidental Funnies – the Quintessential Trendy Restaurant Menu

We all know the place that has this menu… it’s likely called a gastropub, and it probably has some minimalist, urban chic decor going on – think exposed brick, industrial lighting and poured concrete floors with an epoxy glaze on top. The food isn’t bad, in fact they...
