Now that we've entered the year where two-thousand is pronounced twenty, we've officially reached the future. Stay on the cutting edge of foodnology with today’s deal: for $12 you get $30 worth of tapas, drinks, and more at the tech-savvy restaurant known to its fellow machines as T1 Tapas. This futuristic marriage of technology, humanity, and tasty cuisine is located just a short 17-mile robo-datctyl trip from downtown Charlotte.

Many of the booths at T1 feature a tabletop touch screen that lets you browse through menus, playlists, photos, and events with a tap of the finger, like a scene from Minority Report, except delicious and exciting instead of frustrating and gray. These Connection Booths also feature a place to plug in MP3 players, laptops, USB drives, and SD cards to create a personalized viewing experience on the accompanying 32-inch flatscreen. Have your next business meeting while feasting over tapas galore and inevitably delving into hilarious cat-accident videos. Trick your friends (with the promise of dinner) into suffering through a slideshow of your vacation snapshots that they really don't care to see. Technology hasn't tasted this good since the invention of space-age Go-gurt.

The futuristic sights and sounds are merely the frosting on a tapas-filled space cake. Share some BBQ shrimp on sweet-corn fritters ($7) or jerk-marinated chicken skewers ($7), among others. Or go for the heartier grande tapas, featuring options like walnut-crusted stuffed chicken ($11) and pancetta-wrapped pork tenderloin ($12). While tapas may be the basis of T1's offerings, its extensive menu goes beyond these passable plates. Order up some savory crepes, such as the seasonal vegetable crepe ($8), or go green with a warm goat-cheese salad ($6). Top it off with a white chocolate crème brûlée ($6) or any other sweetly satisfying meal capper from the dessert menu. T1 also has a full bar to satiate liquid cravings.

Reviews

CNN, the Charlotte Observer, Lake Norman Official Visitors Guide, and Uptown Life have all featured the innovative restaurant, praising not only its avant-garde atmosphere, but the food as well:

  • T1 Tapas' recipe for success: Take one part British pub, one part techno toyland, one part locavore diner and stir together. Add a dollop of fine cuisine and a dash of Vegas or Manhattan. Pack neatly into a corner space, simmer to create buzz, serve hot daily with plenty of friendly enthusiasm. – Lake Norman Official Visitors Guide
  • One day's special of kampachi – a lush white-fleshed fish done here with blueberry gastrique over rice with pistachios (this was before the recall) – was extraordinary: beautifully cooked, well-balanced, a generous portion for $11. Another winner: walnut-crusted chicken breast stuffed with herbed cream cheese over spinach and quinoa. Moroccan-spiced lentils with tofu and make-it-yourself mahi tacos are regulars on the menu, and delicious. – Helen Schwab, Charlotte Observer

A lone Citysearcher gives T1 Tapas a perfect five stars:

  • If you're a tech savvy, food buff who loves live music, wine bars and the environment, you need to check out T1 Tapas....With all the entertainment possibilities I was pleasantly surprised to find the food was actually, very good....barring a major computer crash or operations failure, T1 is a definite winner. – lendmeyoureyes
