Scotch Bonnet Snapper, $11
T1 Tapas in Birkdale might just be the most technologically advanced restaurant in the city. Owned and operated by T1 Visions, a hardware and software company, the restaurant includes computerized menus as tabletops and flat screens in every booth that can project images from personal digital devices such as laptops and cameras. The interior features dark, concrete floors and a spaceship-like,
circular design -- creating a futuristic feeling that's heightened by the glowing faces of guests leaning over their computerized tables.
Featuring tapas plates made with organic, seasonal, and local ingredients, the menu is a mix of international bites such as pork empanadas and closer-to-home tastes including soft pretzels with mustard. Bring your portable technology and enjoy a snack and a drink—T1 offers more than thirty martinis including sweet concoctions like the Pineapple Upside-down Cake, with vanilla vodka, Frangelico, pineapple juice, and grenadine. Just don't spill on your laptop.
