In your own words, 'The actual [original] menu is in French'.
The concept, however, should be better stressed. This is not the official menu, but rather a privately-printed English translation of it. And the profusely decorated cover also looks a far cry from the Vienna Court's usual practice. (The American spelling of 'Honour' would suggest an adaptation of the original menu card, at the instigation of the NY Herald magazine itself and for the use of English-speaking residents and visitors to Austria.)
