Restaurant Menu Components – Info, Live Demos


updated May 3, 2018

The menu item(s) you see on these pages are active displays from the Restaurant Menu Components plugin we’re currently developing for use on WordPress sites. If you come back to this page and things don’t look right, wait a few minutes and refresh your browser. As we’re actively working on this plugin, display issues likely indicate that we’re in the middle of coding some aspect of it.

The Restaurant Menu Components plugin is intended to solve issues we’ve been having with other plugins we’ve used on some of our current sites. In starting a new plugin from scratch, we can take care of issues as they come up, and include features we’ve been looking or hoping for.

This plugin is currently unavailable as the first release is still being developed. Please contact me at dave@micuisine.com with any questions.

Use the sidebar menu, to the right on desktops and below on mobile devices, to view the various live demo pages.
