My mate and I are going to Portillo's in about an hour. I fire up the APP and place a Bitcoin deposit, an amount I know is more than what I'm going to spend. When I get to the restaurant, I show my receipt via the APP. The confirmations have already been done prior to us getting to the Portillo's therefore, upon paying the tab, change is forward to our Bitcoin address. Even if we carry-out, no need for us to wait for a confirmation, for we know that Portillo's is good for it. The onus was on the customer at the onset of the transaction, thereby protecting the eating establishment.

I would love it if there were a place near me that does that.

What app are you talking about?  Not sure if you're talking about bitpay or something, or that portillos accepts Bitcoin.

I assumed he was talking about a hypothetical way that a restaurant like Portillo's could accept bitcoin for payment and not have to worry about 0-confirmations.

I don't think such an app exists yet, and I don't think there are any Portillo's accepting bitcoin yet.

Ok, thanks, hypothetical not literal...I was about to head to Portillo's.

Yeah.  If I thought is was literal, I'd be eating lunch and dinner at Portillo's almost every day just to reward them for making the decision!

Same here Smiley

Next time I go to Moto (or ING next door, same chef/owner) I'm going to pitch them.  The owner/chef now cooks at ING and has promoted the Suisse Chef to Executive chef, both of these people in to science and technical things, maybe they would go for it.

Hmm, just a little afterthought, maybe some of us Chicago Bitcoiners can go as a group, if they let us pay in bitcoin.  For Moto, your looking at about $300/person, maybe 1/2 that at ING, so not for everyone.  But they might be more inclined to take BTC for at least one meal if there is a group of us.  At least it will get the ball rolling.
