Recently, I perused a wine/beer/spirit list at Michael Symon’s Roast.  The choices were seemingly endless, but given each category was neatly filed away behind a descriptive folder, it was easy to find my beer of choice.  Increasingly, restaurants and bars are turning to tablets for anything from quick service ordering to full service bar menus.  Although it takes some of the pressure off the server and allows the customer to zero in on their indulgence of choice, it all seems a bit…impersonal.  As technology takes us for another turn, I invite you to sound off on this new trend.  Does your restaurant use iPads?  Have you eaten at one that does?  Tell us what you think below in the comments.
