    I use a shortcode into the title of menu item that display a Custom Field Value (this is the actual main menu into the top bar -> submenu “Services”)
    At the moment I have to set either the field + post_id [field "my_key" post_id=1] or only the field
    [field "my_key"] and it will display the field value of the current post.

    I would like to add a third possibility: In fact, The shortcode is used in a menu item type Page that contains Custom Field Value I want to display is stored in the same post_id.
    I would like use a shortcode like that [field "my_key" post_id=item_menu_pageid] or directly by hook for a specific item menu.

    this is the function:

    add_shortcode('field', 'shortcode_field');
    function shortcode_field($atts){
                      'post_id' => NULL,
                   ), $atts));
      if(!isset($atts[0])) return;
           $field = esc_attr($atts[0]);
           global $post;
           $post_id = (NULL === $post_id) ? $post->ID : $post_id;
           return get_post_meta($post_id, $field, true);
