The Leading Hospitality Technology Platform Welcomes USHG’s Entire Portfolio of Restaurants, including New York City’s Untitled, Marta, and Gramercy Tavern

New York (September 4, 2018) – Today, Resy, the leading hospitality technology company, announces they are the exclusive reservation and management platform for famed New York City restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG). USHG restaurants including Untitled, Marta and Blue Smoke will join Union Square Cafe and Manhatta as the first to roll out Resy’s rich capabilities for guests and restaurant teams. The remaining six restaurants in USHG’s portfolio that accept reservations, including Gramercy Tavern, The Modern and Maialino, will join in the coming months.

“We’re excited to welcome the entire Union Square Hospitality Group family of restaurants to Resy,” said Resy CEO and co-founder, Ben Leventhal. “Our love of restaurants runs deep, and USHG’s Union Square Cafe has been an incredible partner for more than two years. The opportunity to expand our relationship to offer the most seamless hospitality technology experience possible to all USHG restaurants is an important one. They’re veterans when it comes to understanding the role of technology for restaurants and are at the forefront of innovation.”

Resy will now provide USHG’s centralized reservations team with a universal view of availability across its family of restaurants, capturing all pertinent information and guest profiles in a singular place. A key feature for these restaurants is Resy Fly, a ground-breaking inventory optimization engine designed to help restaurants minimize the gaps between reservations. Resy Fly represents a significant advancement for USHG and the industry, offering a combination of slots-based and inputs-based systems for the first time. Resy Fly uniquely allows restaurants to tailor the way they manage tables according to their specific needs. USHG restaurants will now have the flexibility to schedule different floor plans, reservation grids, and hours of operation for special days or time periods. Additionally, Resy’s real-time reporting integrates with USHG’s point-of-sale system, so that restaurant teams can learn more about individual preferences and can take even better care of guests.

“We have been continually impressed by Resy’s innovative spirit, which spurred us to make an investment last year to further fuel their growth, and ultimately make that leap and implement their platform across our businesses,” shared Maureen Cushing, Vice President of Technology & Process for Union Square Hospitality Group. “We look forward to working together to reimagine new ways that smart technology can support warm, personable hospitality.”

Resy’s guest app and website will provide USHG restaurant guests with a hassle-free experience, from booking and changing reservations, to managing dining profiles and payment. Resy offers flexible solutions for confirmation and waitlisting through its Notify system, and the SMS platform enables real-time communication with host stands so that last-minute adjustments may be completed at ease. Resy’s app may be downloaded for free, available on both iOS and Android.

Some of the world’s most awarded and favored restaurants use Resy, including New York City restaurants Lilia, Le Bernardin, Don Angie, Frenchette, and more. For more information on Resy, please visit www.resy.com. For information on the Union Square Hospitality Group, please visit www.ushgnyc.com.
