Three Michelin Star Restaurant Swaps Plates for iPads
29 December, 2016
iPad menus are fairly ubiquitous these days and they also make great chopping boards, but serving three Michelin star food on tablets? More common than you think.
Quince in San Francisco, which collected a third star in the most recent Michelin Guide, is the latest to employ iPads in its plating, serving a dish called “A Dog in Search of Gold,” which consists of white truffle croquettes served on an iPad playing footage of a dog searching for, yes you guessed it, truffles.
It’s a pretty dish, but it's difficult to tell from the video below how much this really enhances the dining experience. There is also, as Food Beast reports, a frog leg dish featuring video of a frog hopping around. There doesn't appear to be any sound.

In response to hygiene concerns, the restaurant responded: “The food does not directly sit on top of the iPad. The removable plexi sheath is washed and sanitized after every use in keeping with all other plate ware.”
