I have reviewed hundreds of restaurants and
I am always astonished at how little attention restaurateurs
pay to their patrons’ first impression, the menu.
Taste Envy is a long overdue concept.

Menu design and production
We build all our menus to order, by hand in Seattle, WA. We use exact specifications, impeccable quality and expert craftsmanship and details that only our patented designs can yield. From menu covers that come in a variety of materials to a check presenter that will, of course, inspire envy.
Menus never had it this good.
Out & About
Nadine & Jason are regularly seen dining around Seattle
with their children, who are now avid foodies.
“It was a natural progression,” said Jason Brown, co-owner and founder of
Lost Luggage. “The menu industry is in a similar state to that of the
presentation industry when I first started in 1994. I’m finding that our experience
in presentation design easily translates to menus.
