LONDON, Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The acclaimed chef and restaurateur, Tom Aikens, has chosen to adopt OpenTable, the world's leading provider of reservation and guest management solutions for restaurants, at his eponymous Michelin starred flagship Chelsea restaurant when it re-opens on January 12 after a three month refurbishment.
Tom Aikens' other restaurants Tom's Kitchen in Chelsea and its sister restaurant Tom's Kitchen at Somerset House already use the OpenTable reservation and guest management system.
"The OpenTable system is efficient and easy to use and provides a simple way for us to know and recognise our diners," said Tom Aikens. "We have seen at Tom's Kitchen at Somerset House how the combination of the toptable network and OpenTable technology can help us reach more diners, offer better availability and make a positive impact on business levels. This has motivated us to switch systems at my Chelsea restaurant."
"It is great to see more and more restaurants recognising the way our technology can help them generate more bookings," comments Chris Wood, Managing Director of OpenTable. "Our real-time reservation system can help them manage their bookings effectively and maximise their business potential whether it be a restaurant with 20 seats or 200 seats."
In addition to benefiting from the OpenTable Electronic Reservation Book technology solution, the Tom Aikens Restaurant will be featured on toptable.com, the leading online consumer destination for restaurant bookings in the UK which is owned and operated by OpenTable.
