OpenTable and FoodSpotting Are Hitched

In a move straight out of the Reese's play book, the online restaurant reservation provider OpenTable announced yesterday that it has acquired FoodSpotting, which is a photo app that allows diners to post their fancy food porn.

Seems like a marriage made in heaven. OpenTable did lack in visual appeal and a quick jaunt through FoodSpotting, specifically clicking on Dim Sum in Dallas, and I'm hungry. Unfortunately Kirin Court isn't on OpenTable. So, there are a few caveats to the collaboration (like not all places on TrainSpotting are on OpenTable and vice versa). But, that's why FoodSpotting will continue to also operate as an app and site and a stand-alone basis.

OpenTable has already started adding FoodSpotting photos to give customers a taste of what is to come.
