I just stumbled into SF's exclusive burger joint of the future... and got to try it out! Pt 1 of 2


On the way to work this morning, I was reading an SF Chronicle article about a new burger place that  had opened up. What was interesting here was that it was apparently the latest foodtech startup to capitalize on a growing trend of automation. Over the years, we've seen many aspects of retail food become automated: payments, delivery, even service. But has there ever been a solid effort to create an end-to-end food preparation, and further, one that took on the venerable burger (the quintessential, go-to American food)?
