CMS Collections Consolidation & 20 Collections Limit

Currently if you look at the Menu page there are 20 categories (eg Appetizer, Soups…)
Each Category has multiple items under it as you can see on the link provided
We want to have a collection with all 20 categories (in drop down format) so when a new item is added on the menu, it can be pointed to the correct category to be displayed on the page
