If ever you’re in San Francisco with your loved ones, you might want to take this opportunity to impress and treat them to a fancy restaurant such as ?Quince?.
What’s so special about it, you ask? Just order the delicacy called “A Dog in Search of Gold,” then you be the judge. Not only does it taste divine, it’s also plated in an Apple iPad!

The dish involves white truffle croquettes on iPads featuring a video of water dogs hunting for truffles. An image of the dish was tweeted by Richie Nakano, the local chef, on Tuesday. Michael Tusk, the chef and owner of Quince, told cnet.com that his goal was never to capture a younger audience, but “really to work on fun collaborations and have a humorous or whimsical start to the meal.”
When asked about the hygienic aspect, Tusk responded “The iPad slips and out of the box and we designed a sheath that is cleaned after each order. The food does not directly sit on top of the iPad at all. The iPads are removable and sit on top of cleanable screen that is sanitized after every order.”
How the Idea Came About
The Daily Mail reported last year that the British chefs were on a creative plating spree. This included serving food on garbage-can lids, as well as iPads. Guests must bear in mind that this is part of a $220 tasting menu, so understandably, a good story attached to it must add to the appeal.
In Chef Tusk’s case he said, “Living in San Francisco for over 20 years I have witnessed the tech boom and I wanted to combine a little bit of gastronomy with technology and a little bit of education.”
Well, as long as the food tastes succulent, the guests wouldn?t really mind where or how it?s served, even using an Apple iPad.
