OpenTable app launches 'lickable' food pictures

Related tags: Food

Online restaurant reservations provider OpenTable has unveiled new 'lickable' technology which allows diners to taste dishes from their favourite restaurants.

OpenTable Taste is a new feature available through the OpenTable app which allows diners to try dishes before they book a restaurant through their smartphone or tablet.

Diners looking for the perfect meal – or wanting to relive one – can simply open the latest version of the OpenTable app to find restaurant dish photos and lick away. 

The technology also makes it possible for diners adhering to special diets ranging from low-carb to paleo to taste anything they want guilt-free. 

The app, which uses 4D technology, also enables restaurants to share and promote their top dishes.

The temperature control via tongue swipes ensures that the desirability and integrity of the dish is maintained from the first to last lick, said OpenTable. 

“OpenTable is committed to helping diners and restaurants around the globe connect in new and exciting ways,” said Scott Jampol, OpenTable senior vice president of marketing.

“OpenTable Taste combines the unstoppable food porn trend with groundbreaking technology that we believe will make discovering new restaurants more delightful by giving diners a taste of the restaurant before they arrive.” 

More information about the OpenTable Taste feature can be found at Taste.Opentable.com
