Top Washington D.C. French Restaurant Introduces Tiare Technology Solution for Ordering Sought-After French Wines
Tiare Technology announced today that it has deployed its patented Wireless WineList™ solution at Bistrot Lepic & Wine Bar in Washington, DC, one of the city’s top French restaurants and the first in the city to offer their guests Tiare’s iPad-based menu ordering solution for wine and cocktails.
The Wireless WineList application allows restaurant guests to easily view and order wines using a wireless Apple iPad tablet or other wireless device and Tiare’s proprietary software. Guests can use the tablets to peruse the wine list to discover the breadth of wines offered. They can also quickly sort the wines to display by region, varietal, price range or other categories, or click to search the database and pinpoint a specific selection.
The system displays extensive information about the restaurant’s wines, including tasting notes, vintage information, and background on the winery, the region or the grape varietals. Photos, wine labels, maps, videos and other information are also easily displayed.
Cyrille Brenac is at the helm of Bistrot Lepic’s wine program, featuring over 500 bottles in a custom-designed wine cellar. “I strive to feature French wines not commonly available in the United States,” Brenac says. “Tiare’s Wireless WineList system allows guests to easily review the wine list and learn about these wonderful wines. We are delighted to be the first restaurant in the city to feature this technology.”
Tiare’s Wireless WineList system is designed to meet the needs of both the wine expert and the wine novice. It offers powerful tools to allow oenophiles to easily sort, analyze and locate a particular selection, view a vertical collection or explore regional specialties. Casual users can learn about the restaurant’s offerings at their leisure, without the fear of intimidation.
The system is intended to complement, rather than replace, the personal attention of the sommelier or server. Guests can place selections onto the system’s Consideration List™ for discussion with the restaurant’s staff. The system can also be configured to page the staff with the guest’s selection, or even place the order directly to the restaurant’s point of sale system.
“We selected Tiare for their unique ability to customize the system to reflect the restaurant’s aesthetic, as well as to tailor the way the wines could be categorized,” Brenac says. “Other products just don’t have this flexibility.”
Brenac offers the Wireless WineList tablets to his guests in the main dining room as well as the upstairs wine bar. Ultimately, he would like to eliminate paper menus completely.
“Maintaining the list is now much more efficient because we can add or remove a wine, or change a vintage on a moment’s notice – and it is reflected immediately on the wine list,” says Brenac. Bistrot Lepic also features their expansive digestif offerings on the iPads.
“The Wireless WineList system is an exciting platform that allows restaurants to get the most from their wine program and increase wine sales,” says Jeff Krevitt, President of Tiare Technology. “What Tiare offers is a comprehensive and customized business solution for the restaurant – not just a do-it-yourself app.”
The system can also allow a restaurant to enhance its relationship with the guests, by providing the option to email themselves their wine selections or link to social media as a memento of their experience at the restaurant. The wine preferences of the guest can also be stored for future offerings and communication between the guest and the restaurant.
Tiare’s ordering solutions can be found across the United States and around the world. Those inside the Beltway can enjoy using the Tiare Wireless WineList at Bistrot Lepic, and if headed off to Iowa for the Caucuses, stop by the top restaurants in Des Moines, Centro and Django, to experience the Wireless WineList. Krevitt adds, “No matter what your party affiliation, everyone can agree that the Tiare Wireless WineList is a winning solution.”
