Restaurant Idea: Random()
June 9, 2007
I was over at Chipotle’s a while ago, and their simplistic menu inspired me to think of a new type of restaurant. There would be only three things on the menu:
Vegetable, meat, and drink are the different seed values you use to get a random dish. So if you order Random(Meat), you would get a random item from a list of meat dishes not available to the consumer.
Immediate objections to the lack of specific choice were raised. To answer that, your receipts would have the dish number. So when you come back, you can order specific dishes you liked or assuage picky eaters.
