Thanks to all who replied to my question about on vs in. The consensus
appears to be that "on" is better in this case, with a number of people
making the point that you would say something like "what's on the menu
today" if you were in a restaurant. Conveniently, this supports my side of
the disagreement with my editor!

Thanks again
