QR code menus are trending.

In the early days of the pandemic, many restaurants turned to QR codes instead of printed menus, with Arpeggio BYOB in Spring House being one of the earliest adopters, writes Michael Klein for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Since the focus on the spread of the coronavirus has now shifted from surfaces to airborne issues, some restaurants have rushed to bring back printed menus, but Arpeggio is not one of them.

The restaurant has an extensive menu that covers the Mediterranean and includes dozens of pizzas, appetizers, kebabs, chicken, and veal dishes.

Mary Cullom and Hamdy Khalil, who are partners in Arpeggio, said that benefits go far beyond the $10,000 a year the restaurant saves on printed menus.

The digital QR menus are precise and have “eliminated confusion,” said Cullom.

For example, the restaurant offers two plain pizzas – a New York-style labeled as plain pizza and a Margherita.

After the owners spent months taking pictures of all the pizzas and other dishes, customers know exactly what they are ordering.

Customers who do not have a phone or resist using one are offered iPads, which have larger screens.
