Episode details

Once, in an interview about my work, someone asked me: “Did you and Andrew from Family Meal just look at each other and say, ‘We have the two most relevant restaurant newsletters, let’s do a podcast?’” And, reader/listener, that is fact.

This week, we talk more about the current state of restaurant reservations and why it’s the wrong time to call a winner [2:03], and I talk about Tablz, a new booking upstart that thinks about reservations a little differently [7:10]. Then, Andrew talks about San Francisco Chronicle critic Soleil Ho’s announcement that they’re leaving their restaurant criticism role for the paper’s opinion desk [15:15].
