Pick Your Poison Via Touch Screen At Clo Wine Bar In NYC

Lovers of interactive restaurant menus (a geeky group we do admit belonging to) need to know about a wine bar in New York that's got the geek thing going: Clo, on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center.
Whether you know heaps about wine or only care whether it's red or white on a given night, you will probably have a lot of fun choosing your wine using Clo's "motion-activated" touch screen list. Not only that, you can pay by credit card and thenthe ultimate geek touchthe wine is automatically dispensed into your glass, in 2oz or 4oz measures. No waiters required. And they have some special preservation system in place so all those open bottles of wine don't go bad.
Clo is quick to point out that should you want a human touch, they have a "a full staff of knowledgeable sommeliers," although it seems hard to believe they could remember as much information as the touch screen system contains. We've got an urge to go along and give them a pop quiz.
