Table for 5 billion please! “Live on Air”, the world’s first live broadcast restaurant, opened in February in Park Slope Brooklyn welcoming those who are hungry – for attention. Outfitted with a state of the art broadcast facility actually taking up part of the dining floor, Live on Air schedules music, comedy, scenes from the kitchen or your birthday party and streams it out on Facebook, Periscope, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram. A “Director’s Chair” corner hosts interviews by recruited talent or willing diners with something to say. If patrons agree to go live on air (between courses, of course) they earn 10% off the check.
Social Dining truly goes social! Now, the world can confirm if your Cajun Shrimp n’ Grits had more shrimp or grits, and if the Cornflake Chicken & Waffles were simultaneously crispy and tender. A full menu of Southern influenced cuisine by Chef Bobby Boyer is being served at Dinner and Weekend Brunch. The small type on the menu speaks not of farm sourced ingredients or the need to tell your server of any allergies, but rather of their rights to broadcast your image on a variety of social channels. Watch the curated action on your smart phone, tablet or log on to the in-house feed.
And don’t change that channel! Word is news celebrity Maury Povitch has teamed up with Sportscaster Tony Kornheiser and bought the legendary Washington D.C. watering hole Chadwicks with the intention of converting it to a podcast restaurant. Stay tuned, or logged on, for more.
