Vintage Menu Print: The Breakfast Autocrat
A literary nod by the Hotel New Yorker.
This unframed print references a collection of essays written by Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. and originally published in the Atlantic Monthly in the mid 1850s. The hotel menu paid homage to it with this rather autocratic egg -- perfect to accompany you while you eat breakfast.
The print is the menu cover -- and you'll also get the interior of the menu with food and prices.

How we'd use this beauty in our own homes.
Inspired by a 120-year-old candy brand (and still part of a balanced breakfast).
Calling all multitaskers! While you sleep, you can cook your oatmeal overnight in the refrigerator. There's no actual cooking -- and no actual recipe -- required.
