New York City meets Munich

Click and eat

January 17th, 2008 · No Comments · Dining, NYC, Reviews, Web

There aren’t many web sites that truly make a tangible impact on my life. Sure, there’s plenty of websites that inform and entertain, and perhaps you could qualify those as having an impact as well. But ones that actually bring me new experiences and broaden who I am are rare.

Even more rare are such sites that I don’t even need to go to. Such a site is OpenTable.com.

Let me explain.

OpenTable was recommended to me by a good friend who is pretty savvy when it comes to dining out. You might think a website that makes it easy to book a table at a restaurant, while useful, wouldn’t be that big of a deal. For many people, that would be true. But those people don’t have my wife.

Shortly after I mentioned the site to Conny View definition in a new window, we suddenly started going out to a lot of great places to eat, and we started going more regularly. I didn’t even have to click on a single link. I don’t even think I have an account there.

She loves OpenTable, which makes it easy for her to research places we could go, and then takes care of all the arrangements. I love that she loves it. And I love it because she loves it, and I love to eat out. OpenTable is all about the love.

Even though OpenTable already have a ton of New York City restaurants in their network, each week more are added. They also offer a reward program where you earn points that can be redeemed for credit vouchers. OpenTable isn’t just for New York City either, so we can use it when we travel to other cities.

The only bad part about OpenTable is that I may need to get some bigger pants.
