Sensors, Transparency and the Modern Restaurant

Saturday, March 12
11:00AM - 12:00PM

The Driskill
604 Brazos St


We’re familiar with consumer restaurant reviews. New technology gives diners the ability to test restaurant dishes for specific ingredients, allergens, or other dietary restrictions. What happens when these science-based results become part of the review process? How does this impact the social contract between restaurants and diners? Consumers want more transparency into what they’re eating. Now they can determine, with a scientific degree of certainty, exactly what’s on their plates. What happens when this doesn’t match the restaurant’s data? What does this mean for the future of health and dining? This lively discussion will center on these new devices and its impact on modern dining.
