The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, a national chain with a branch in Carle Place, just launched a new in-store app called Noshlist that informs you via your phone that your table is ready. This means the end of carrying around heavy buzzers within a few yards of the place. You can also use the wait time to shop nearby.

The app, which is on the stores iPad, inputs your name, party size and cell number when you arrive. Then youre free to leave, knowing that youll get a text summoning you back to the restaurant. Or, if you dont have text messaging, you can alternately get an automated voice call. There's a grace period of 5 to 10 minutes.

This could be the harbinger of similar systems, to be introduced at other popular chain eateries on Long Island.

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers is at 125 Old Country Rd., Carle Place, 516-248-3700
