Continuing with the theme of menu mistakes, in my humble opinion this is one of the greatest misspelled menus of all time. If you count repeated misspellings and include the bottom line, which is partially cut off, you should find at least six typos. So thanks, Evergreen Restaurant in Lake George, New York. You take the (pan)cake!

Take-out menus are proving to be an excellent source of misspellings. Maybe there's money to be made in menu proofreading. This menu, from the Europe Cafe & Grill in Tenafly, New Jersey, is just a little nuttier than it needs to be. But the hummus was terrific.

I don't often turn to Chinese restaurant menus for misspellings because they can be easy targets. But this one invented a new word that has real charm. Quite accidentally, it's the second "steak"-related Misspelling of the Month in a row. So thanks to Empire Szechuan Village on Seventh Avenue, South, in New York City for this tasty mistake. (Of course, "waterchestnut" should be two words and plural as well.)

Misspelling of the Month
I admit that I had to mentally scroll through my junior high grammar lessons to be sure the error on this sign truly was a mistake. But I was right. Can you find it? Seen near the corner of Lakeview Avenue and Merselis Avenue in Clifton, New Jersey.
