The future has arrived in the form of Easta, a fully automated lunch spot in the heart of the Financial District. Here's how it works: diners enter the streamlined, hyper-modern space and approach a wall-mounted iPad. There, they can quickly and intuitively select from the vegetarian, quinoa-based menu, place an order and swipe a card. Within seconds, the diner's first name and last initial appear on an overhead screen (much like at the airport) and within minutes, the name is highlighted and associated with a numbered cubby where food then miraculously appears. The future is now.
