What? By not allowing search engines to index their menus or people to
search the page to find their favourite dish? If your design makes
your product more appealing and if technology allows users to assemble
an order quickly, then it is great, if it is there to woo you
technically then a clever design agency got another sucker client.

Makes you wonder how easy this menu is to change to a seasonal or
special of the week and how much it would cost you?
