Make reservations with ease thanks to OpenTable.com
When I saw CNET's Natali del Conte (one of my top women in tech) recommending her favorite time-saving sites on the Today show recently, it tripped a memory switch and I realised there was something I should share with Popgadget readers.
That thing is a service called OpenTable, which I used when I visited New York last year.
OpenTable's website makes dining out a breeze by allowing you to make a reservation at any of 8,000 restaurants across the U.S. and Canada (from wherever you happen to be). Simply log on, select the restaurant plus the time and date of your choice, and you're good to go. On the day of your reservation, you'll receive a call to remind you of your dinner plans (at your hotel if you're on vacation - they'll even leave a message which there's no obligation to return). OpenTable basically makes it easy for anyone to reserve a seat - especially foreign travellers like myself.
Oh, and if you're wondering, the table I reserved was at the Marriott in Times Square, and it was one of the best meals of my life.
Thanks for the reminder, Natali!
