RESY LAUNCHES IN MIAMI
Restaurant reservations app partners with hot spots like Yardbird to help consumers land prime tables
Miami, FL (February 26, 2015) – Resy a free mobile restaurant reservations app, has officially launched in Miami today to make booking reservations at a curated selection of Miami’s best restaurants fast and seamless. For a small fee, Miamians can now snag coveted dinner reservations and their table of choice at some of the city’s most popular restaurants including Yardbird, Lure, Khong River House, Bazaar, Cleo, 50 Eggs, Dolce Italian and more with two clicks. And, to celebrate the launch, now through the end of March, every Resy guest will receive a complimentary glass of sparkling wine at the table.
“No city more fundamentally understands the idea of restaurants as entertainment than Miami does,” said Ben Leventhal, co-founder and CEO of Resy. “There’s an energy in these restaurants that’s addictive and contagious. Yardbird, Michael’s, Mandolin, Lure, Seagrape — it’s about time we got Resy up and running here. We hope Resy will become an essential tool anytime you have a choice to make about where you’re eating, whether you’re a local restaurant lover or someone visiting from out of town.”
“We’re excited about Resy’s fresh take on restaurant technology and reservations management and are thrilled to be partnering with them to push the industry forward,” said John Kunkel, CEO of 50 Eggs who joins Resy’s advisory board.
Founded by Eater co-founder Ben Leventhal and tech entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk, Resy provides consumers with the ability to land the best table in town, even at the last minute. Tables range in price from free to about $25 per person. This is an exciting time for the rapidly growing app, which has already booked nearly 10,000 seats since its debut in June 2014, at more than 100 hot spots across New York and Los Angeles.
To kick off the Miami launch, Resy recently paired up with Illy coffee on their innovative Push Button Mobile Café at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Six VIP seats were available to book through Resy where ticketed Grand Tasting Village attendees experienced coffee and sweet treats by Chef Scott Conant and his new restaurant, Corsair Miami.
