Well, no matter how you look at them, whether on a computer monitor or
on a piece of heavy paper in a restaurant, all the things listed are
options or choices regardless of whether the individual options/choices
are edible, do things, name things, turn things on or off. So I'd go
with Options.

Heavy sigh (having delivered myself of that major pronouncement),
