With a prime location in San Francisco and the Financial District, Quince is widely heralded as one of the most beautiful restaurants. It has plenty of buzz, the premium rates, an extensive wine list, and was recently awarded with the third Michelin Star. Now, it also has a dish that is served using an iPad as a plate. Because San Francisco.

Just about everything else on the planet has a touchscreen and Wi-Fi connectivity baked in these days, so why shouldn’t the plates at fine restaurants?

Chef Michael Tusk has a James Beard award, Michelin Stars, and two highly acclaimed restaurants to his name, so it is difficult to question any of his decisions at this point. His final decision is as close as he has come to a questionable one, though. A relatively new addition to the popular menu at Quince is called “A Dog In Search of Gold,” and it is plated on an iPad Pro.

SFist first reported on a tweet from San Francisco chef Richie Nakano, who was aware of the crazy new dish from a friend who texted him a photo, as you can see in the tweet below.

The person who texted Nakano described the court as “white truffle croquettes on iPads playing videos of water dogs on the truffle hunt.” Sure, why not? SFist notes that several restaurants in the united kingdom, plating different dishes on iPads since last year, but this seems to be the first time that a notable restaurant in America has jumped on what we sincerely hope is a remarkable short-term trend.
