Suppose that you own a restaurant and you want to make a particular soup for each day of the week, and you want to capitalize the name on the menu (as if it's a proper name or a unique title or something like that).
What would you call it? "Soup Of The Day" or "The Soup Of the Day"? Or both are possible?
I'm not concerned about menus per se. Articles may be omitted in menus, headlines, etc for the sake of shortness. But when a customer sees that the name is started with a capital, they know that it's a special title. How should they order it then? With the definite article or without?
- Are you ready to order?
- Yes. I'll have (?The) Soup Of The Day.
I think maybe the article is not necessary (or even wrong) because unique titles often don't have it (e.g., He is president of France.), but there's this grammar I have that says otherwise.
