Interactive dining is the new buzz-phrase in the restaurant business, what with restaurants of all kinds -- ranging from top-notch fine dining establishments to crummy student joints -- taking steps to give their customers truly interactive dining experiences that will be memorable for more than just good food.

With the technology available these days, there are a lot of ways that dining can be made more interactive. Many restaurants are providing customers with touchscreen menus as well as access to web browsing and social media services. Restaurants can also attract customers via interactive dining initiatives involving rewards for customers, or even offering diners the chance to take part in preparing the food.

Other restaurants leverage the arts to attract their customers, with the Atelier Crenn restaurant in San Francisco treating customers to a theatrical dining experience where the menu is inspired by poetry.
