segue bar
 n.— «At Morandi, where the chef, Jody Williams, presides over a menu laced with plenty of smaller dishes mixed with showy platters of branzino or steak for two, the computer system has been redesigned to include something called a segue bar. Waiters insert it electronically between groups of dishes. Instead of indicating traditional course breaks, which give waiters time to remove plates and reset the table, the segue bar simply slows down the flow from the kitchen.» —“Is the Entree Heading for Extinction?” by Kim Severson New York Times Dec. 5, 2007.
