Do Restaurant at the View

I am not a trendy person but tonight I felt I had dropped in on the Jetsons when we met good friends at Do. 
My husband saw a segment about the restaurant on CNN so we made a reservation.  This place is not necessarily about the food because it really is an experience, an iPad experience.  
This is the home page for the menu, but it's more than a menu.  The center app is a place to chat with others in the restaurant.  It's a great way to talk about the food or drink you are enjoying, or comment on the music, or just meet others dining.  And speaking of the music, when you arrive there is an app you can download on your iPhone that allows you to be able to vote on the music you want to hear...a modern day "jukebox!" 
The videos on the wall change continuously
Now going to the W.C. is also an experience.  There are buttons you push and the doors automatically open!!
Take a look at the bathroom mirror.
 After putting on your lipstick you can even take a picture of yourself!!

When it's time to order food it's just like online shopping.  Just select the items you want and they will appear in your cart.  

Go to your cart and submit and within seconds your server comes to your table to confirm your order.
Our friends are much younger than me and my husband and they were complimenting us on our contemporary choice of restaurants (a real first for me).  Honestly, I think we were all amazed. 
It wasn't long before we had to hug and say goodbye. 
So we entered our valet parking ticket number into the iPad so the valet had our cars waiting on us when we got to the exit!!

This was one of the coolest experiences I've had in a while and it was fun to enjoy the evening with good food, good friends and our favorite electronic device.


  1. Wow, that's taking technology to a whole new level. But it sounds like you had a great time!

  2. What fun, Cheryl! And how modern! I didn't even know they had a restaurant, so I will put this on my list of places to check out! Just hope I can work all the new-fangled devices! lol Thanks for the tour...hugs...Debbie

  3. I know that my girls would think this is a very cool place indeed! Sounds like fun. Was the food good?

  4. Wow! that sounds like a blast of an evening - technology in a different world.
    It is a bit like shopping in the Uk when you order your food from the supermarket and it is delivered in a lorry.
    Glad you enjoyed it and I will wait and see if we get something like this here in UK

  5. Wow! I can see how this will all be a common experience in the future! Thanks for showing us what we will have awaiting us in a few pays to keep up with technology!

  6. Oh, my, Jojo. That is some restaurant. If you had a grand time, that is all that matters. I would be lost in all that technology.

    Would you be so kind to leave a comment on my BLOG ONLY, for the Miracle Makeover fund drive. Charlie, 8 yr. old, & his story are fabulous. Every comment brings us a $1 for the next person that will be sponsored.

    Have a beautiful weekend.
    TTFN ~

  7. I can't even begin to imagine what this might have been like! Did the food live up to the atmosphere?

  8. I'm having a Jetson moment thinking about this restaurant. I imagine it's only a matter of time until Chicago has one. It does sound like a lot of fun. Was the food good?


  9. Holy cow! That does sound like a cool experience! It would be fun to try!

  10. Wow! Restaurants are being invaded by technology too. How cool is that?...Christine

  11. Sounds like quite an experience, and yes, very Jetsonian! :)

  12. JoJo, this is just the BEST! You all look like you are having such a good time. Just love your posts...
