Edo’s Squid Menu: Innovation @ Work

There’s a great little Italian restaurant on Harrison Street between Franklin & Grace Streets in The Fan district of Richmond called

Edo’s Squid.  It’s right on the VCU campus upstairs over Stuffy’s sandwich shop where they give you a free straw with every drink.  The food at Edo’s Squid is good and fresh.  They serve a lot of seafood as you can tell by the picture of the menu I’ve attached.  I snapped the picture because I thought it was an innovative use of a flip chart.  The menu changes frequently and it’s a lot easier to take down the flip chart and create an up to date menu than to stand on a chair, booth or table and deal with a chalk board which is the most common solution I’ve seen to this problem.  Simple and obvious in hind sight, but I applaud whoever thought of the idea and executed it.
