Eater Tracking: uWink at Hollywood & Highland

New, 6 comments

Here we have a quick status check on Nolan Bushnell's newest uWink, which takes over Wolfgang Puck's shuttered Vert on the second floor of the Hollywood & Highland complex. Bushnell, the man who brought us Atari and Chuck E. Cheese, wants to make sure you have absolutely no human interaction while dining whatsoever: You order everything via touch screen terminals at each table which also double as video game consoles while you wait. Now that Leo DiCaprio is doing a Bushnell biopic, maybe you'll see him watching people watch video screens once it opens. More total randomness: Because it's Top Chef finale day, in a look back to season two, the still-Plywooded original Woodland Hills uWink was used for "restaurant wars." The H&H uWink should open around June 26.
