Dinner and a show is nothing new. But how about a personalized video presentation that plays out on your table as you feast, working its way around the chef’s creations on your plate? That’s what Chinatown’s new French restaurant Partage is able to offer guests in its private dining room, thanks to state-of-the-art, video-mapping technology.
Up to 14 guests are able to enjoy everything from dancing Smurfs to still group photos to funky abstract images projected onto the table, and everything from logos to the names of each guest emblazoned on separate plates. Since the restaurant opened its doors earlier this year, the feature has been utilized for corporate events and private parties.
The restaurant’s team can work with you to create a custom presentation, or you can design your own. The only limitation is that the videos have to be pre-programmed, and any deviations from the planned show require the intervention of the restaurant’s staff. But manager Nicolas Kalpokdjian is hoping to change that soon. He’s currently investigating technology that will allow guests to interact with the videos in various ways, such as swiping through pages of a menu. Other possibilities include audio and scents. Booking the private dining room, and the technology, requires spending at least $1,400. partage.vegas
