There are a shit ton of food trends that probably need to die. There’s no reason you should be paying a restaurant to serve you avocado toast for $12 a pop or drinking craft cocktails where any ingredient is listed as a “foam.”
But these assholes in San Francisco really take the cake for asshole-ry.
The Michelin-starred restaurant, Quince, has adopted the practice of serving entrees on iPads. The only reason I know what “Michelin-starred” means is because I watch Chef’s Table on Netflix, otherwise it would mean nothing to me because I’m too poor to be eating anywhere with that phrase preceding it. Probably because these people are serving fucking dinners on fucking iPads.
Per The Telegraph:
Restaurant owner and chef Michael Tusk presents his ‘A Dog in Search of Gold’ dish on top of an Apple device protected by a custom-designed box which fully protects the iPad.
A sheet of glass is placed on top of the iPad, which plays a clip of dogs hunting for truffles, before it is slid into the protective box.
Yes, I’m an advocate of both dogs, truffles, and dogs looking for truffles. But that is by no means justification for serving me my overpriced meal on top of an Apple device. I even went to see how much this particular dish cost only to find out that this restaurant doesn’t list their prices online which essentially says, “Even Google’s ‘$$$$$’ rating is too high for place.”
The dish includes “chestnut crisp and a celeriac, porcini and ricotta truffle’ dusted with porcini powder.” Oh, and here’s a video of it being prepared.
All this video did was make me have a dream about a waiter tripping on a napkin and dropping this, thus ruining the truffles and breaking the screen on the iPad. .
