VANCOUVER, April 4 /CNW/ - As of today, printed menus are optional at
LIFT Restaurant with the launch of iPad menus. In partnership with
technology developer Binnj Inc. from London Ontario, LIFT is the first
Vancouver restaurant to participate in a four-week trial of the
company's LiveMenu iPad application.
"We're very excited to be the first Vancouver restaurant to test this
iPad menu system," states Bob Lindsay, managing partner at LIFT. "It's
incredible what this software can do. Although it's never going to
replace the need for knowledgeable servers, we feel it's a fun,
interactive way to complement the dining experience."
In addition to the signature Apple touch-screen technology, the iPad
menus feature detailed food descriptors and photography, wine tasting
notes and food/wine pairing recommendations. Similar to adding items to
a cart when online shopping, restaurant guests can compile their order
and hand the iPad back to the server.
The next generation of the software will have expanded features
including the ability to sort food menu items by categories such as
vegetarian or gluten-free. Servers will also be able to simply "bump"
an iPad to retrieve the order through a hand-held interface.
LIFT plans to monitor and evaluate feedback from guests and staff over
the course of the trial period.
Located on the Coal Harbour waterfront at 333 Menchions Mews, LIFT
offers west coast dining, a rooftop deck and full-spectrum views
spanning Stanley Park, North Shore Mountains and downtown Vancouver.
