Diners in Philly Can Now Make Restaurant Reservations Through CityEats.com

Powered by Food Network, CityEats.com Debuts Online Reservations in Philly After Significant Growth in Washington, D.C.

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Apr 17, 2012) - CityEats.com, a new destination for diners to discover and book the best restaurants in town, today announced the launch of its service in Philadelphia. This is CityEats' second city to launch after significant growth in Washington, D.C., where there are nearly 100 restaurants using the service and the business has delivered thousands of reservations.

"I would like to welcome CityEats to the Philadelphia community," said Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter. "Philadelphia offers some of the best restaurant dining experiences in the country."

Powered by Food Network, the most trusted brand in food, CityEats.com simplifies the decision-making process when it comes to dining out at a restaurant. In a fragmented universe, with hundreds of food-related sites and apps, CityEats.com offers a one-stop destination that gives diners decision-making tools in the form of creative, original content: professionally-produced videos and food photography, editorial profiles, up-to-date menus, user-generated reviews and features about all things food in Philly. Everything a diner needs to discover, plan, book and share great dining experiences.

CityEats also gives restaurants what they want: an affordable, efficient and convenient table management and reservation system. Using mobile and cloud-based technology, CityEats gives restaurants the freedom to manage their entire restaurant on an iPad, smartphone or laptop. These tools arm restaurants with real-time data that helps them streamline operations in new ways. And for a busy restaurant, CityEats.com also offers waitlist technology that can send a text message to alert diners to when their table is ready. Pair all of this with the backing of Food Network, a brand with proven consumer trust, and CityEats.com will transform the way restaurants interact with their diners in Philadelphia.

"Philadelphia is a city full of people who are passionate about food," said Sameer Deen, President of CityEats. "CityEats will now help diners feel more confident about their restaurant-related decisions. People can get a real sense of the food, the ambiance and a restaurant's energy, like they already have a seat at the table before they ever set foot through the door."

"Partnering with CityEats.com was a no-brainer for us. We're big fans of the Food Network here, so we jumped at the opportunity to align with their brand," said Chef Mike Stollenwerk of Fish restaurant in Center City Philadelphia. "I'm happy to say that not only are we saving 40 percent a month on online reservations, but the days of managing our tables from a sole host stand are officially over. Now I can manage and see what's happening in my restaurant on an iPad, anywhere, anytime I want."
