Coming Soon to a Restaurant Near You.....
No need for waiters - welcome to the "e-menu" which is being tested in restaurants throughout Europe. The manufacturer claims that it makes the experience of dining more pleasurable - it encourages diners to be more adventurous with their choice of food because the menu is supplemented with pictures, so they can see each dish on the screen before ordering. When you want the bill, just request it on the screen.
Check out this article - you'll learn all the other interactive elements of the e-menu, including playing games while you wait for the food, and sending message to other tables.
Before bridge lessons the other night, we all went out for dinner - and the restaurant had a box on the table that permitted you to raise the volume on any of the television screens in the restaurants. So - if the table wanted to hear what was on the television, the guests could listen and watch. Enjoy your dinner!
