Seems Gordon Ramsay might have one less reason to get all red in the face. Plans for his upcoming Las Vegas eatery (Gordon Ramsay Steak, in the Paris casino) seem to be going well. Not only is there buzz around this opening, still slated for a spring launch, but this will be his first U.S. restaurant to get the techy treatment: There will be 20 Apple iPads used as interactive wine lists. Loaded with an app called SmartCellar, the tablets will offer wine and spirits information as well as help with food pairings.
Of course, I couldn’t see a Michelin-starred chef firing his sommelier, so this is probably more of an extra that’s designed to give patrons a modern experience while deflecting questions like, “Does white zinfandel go with sea bass?” and other horrors.
I love seeing restaurants embrace tablets. It makes a lot of sense, since menus/wine lists can change frequently. And if customers can use them to enhance their experience, then it’s all the better.
Have you dined in any restaurants that used iPads or other mobile tablets/interactive gadgets? What did they use it for, and did it add anything to your experience there? Weigh in.
