Roy Choi's 'To Live and Dine in L.A.' exhibit is a historic art showcase riddled with pure nostalgia.

This menu-based exhibition is sponsored by the library Foundation of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Public Library. The exhibit showcases 9,000 historic menus from the L.A. dinning scene that date back to the 1850s. Located at the L.A. Central Library, these menus are taken from popular restaurants such as Kelbo's, Romanoff's, Golden Pagoda and the Redwood House. Though they are mere menus, these pieces of prehistoric art detail the evolution of Los Angeles culture.

The 'To Live and Dine in L.A.' exhibit will be open to the public from June 13th, 2015 to November 13th, 2015.
