Sometimes you can be rewarded for being the first, and that’s the case with a new reservation platform that just made its debut in Vancouver.
First Table, an international online dining site from New Zealand, has officially launched in our city. The concept allows Vancouver diners to get 50 percent off their food bill if they manage to book the first table of the evening at participating restaurants.
Local eateries like La Mezcaleria (Gastown), Cibo Trattoria, Ancora, Nuba, and Sprezzatura will list their “first tables” for the upcoming week on the First Table website, and diners who pay a $10 booking fee will be able to get the half-price discount off their food bill for two to four people.
“We’re proud to make our North American debut in Vancouver," Mat Weir, founder and CEO of First Table, said in a press statement. "We look forward to helping food lovers save money by dining early and exploring all of the amazing restaurants that help make this city a world-class food destination."
