Big brother is watching you at the restaurants...

Restaurants can know a lot on your private life: your spouse and your family members, your lovers, your birthday…They know your online screen name and if you do not honour your reservation, they can blacklist you. They can get worry if you are unknown online. Article written in French, Google translated English version is here.

It seems like only the most expensive restaurants go to that length to know about a diner before they show up. The type of restaurants that I go to could care less about me and what I do…

I do find it interesting that last weekend I made a reservation on Opentable, showed up and forgot to mention that I have a reservation. They didn’t record me as a no-show, perhaps after I did a star rating of the place on Opentable, or maybe I paid by credit card.

See! They already knew you even you didn’t mention your reservation! They knew you have a foodie forum and pretended you were a normal client! Maybe in Opentable they kept your photo already!
