Notice how people like to photograph their food share it on social media.
It is about to go to the next level with Google Lens using that to provide a new ways to help diners decide what to order simply by pointing their phone at the menu.
Restauranters such as Marisa Tatangelo-Ferri and Nataly Sanchez at Table 426 are ready to embrace the new technology likely to start the next craze in the ever changing world of smart phone usage.
But they hope people will still interact with them personally during their meal and before they leave.
The Google Lens evolution means if you are at a restaurant deciding what to order you can automatically see reviews and find out which dishes are popular by pointing a smart phone at the physical menu.
When you tap on a dish on the menu you can see what it actually looks like and what people are saying about it, thanks to photos and reviews from Google Maps.
Google Lens identifies all the dishes on the menu by looking for things like the font, style, size and color to differentiate dishes from descriptions. It then matches the dish names with relevant photos and reviews for that restaurant in Google Maps.
For travelers overseas Google Lens is able to automatically detect up to 100 different languages and overlay the translation on top of the original words.
Ms Tatangelo-Ferri said she had been a chef for over three decades, has seen a lot of change and knows how important it is to embrace what people are into. She herself admits to being more of a master in the kitchen than she is with the latest technological advances in information technology. But she welcomes it and knows the positive impact social media posts can have on the business.
She and Ms Sanchez know when a new craze comes along almost everyone will adopt it. And they know Table 426 can benefit from having access to what people are saying.
Ms Sanchez looked into Google Lens and thinks it will be an exciting.
"It is taking things to a whole new level. Like everything you can see the positives but there is always an element of fear about something so new. This is something you don't have control over. You can't control what people post. But it will be good to get feedback on specific dishes".
Ms Sanchez hopes people won't stop giving feedback in person when they leave the restaurant. She said the personal touch and customer interaction is still very important to the team at Table 426. They hope that never disappears. "We are human and if something does happen to go wrong we like to know straight away".
Ms Sanchez knows how people using social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram is helping the restaurant become more well known.
"It is important to go with the times," she said,
