Guests at Spindini and the Mesquite Chop House locations are now being introduced to an interactive wine and beverage menu when they sit down at the table.
The River City Management Group restaurants are using Uncorkd, a digital wine list and beverage menu application for the Apple iPad. Diners are able to view product descriptions, tasting notes, and recommended food and wine pairings at their fingertips.
Known for their prime steaks and chops, Mesquite Chop House currently has two locations, in Downtown Memphis and Southaven, with a third restaurant set to open in Germantown in mid-August.
Spindini, 383 S. Main St., concentrates on traditional Italian food prepared with a modern twist.
“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our restaurants,” CEO of RCMG Preston Lamm said in a statement. “This was something that instantly enhanced the experience for our diners while maintaining the excellent service and warm atmosphere that our customers have come to expect.”
The Uncorkd application was developed by Chicago-based Ideavation. The goal is to make the wine-selecting-process less stressful.
Uncorkd claims restaurants that use its app see their wine sales increase by 20 percent or more.
