The NYC Restaurant That Runs Solely On iPads
De Santos use the tablets for everything from taking orders to accepting payments.
This month the Italian restaurant De Santos, located in the West Village, became the first in New York to use iPads as its ordering and payment system. According to Business Insider, the waiters and waitresses can take orders, send them to the kitchen, and swipe customers’ credit cards to pay for the bill. The customized POS (Point of Sale) system, which takes the form of an app on their iPad, can access the table and seating chart, as well as a full visual food and drinks menu.
