Page after page decorated with row after row of tiny type, all crammed together: are we getting old, or are wine lists getting harder to read?
Even for those with 20:20 vision, reading menus and wine lists in small print can be hard going.
One solution is to offer a boxed set of stylish off the- shelf reading glasses of varying strengths as they do at Danny Meyer's New York restaurants.
The more discreet approach to tackling this potentially sensitive issue is to offer a hand held magnifier like this leather one by Levenger, as seen at the Ritz Carlton, Chicago.
For a cheaper alternative, try the £3.95 sheet magnifier from Magnifico.
