Well, it finally happened—a fully automated restaurant has now officially made its debut in downtown Chicago, and it happens to be located right here in the Gold Coast.
Located at 1 W. Division, the new Wow Bao restaurant takes orders from either an app or an in-store kiosk, and once its ready for pick-up, it will be placed in one of 12 cubbies that will display the customer’s name using a LED light.
In the front of the restaurant is a small counter for dining-in customers, however the concept is designed for easy in-and-out carry-out.
As for the food, the new Gold Coast Wow Bao location features its signature menu, along with a couple new rice bowl options, as well as Do-Rite Donuts and coffee during the morning hours.
When the weather heats up, there will also be a late night menu offered as well, which should be a big hit among bar-goers throughout the Gold Coast area.
