3. Resy

Resy is a platform for restaurant-goers to pay for access to a spot to some of the most hard-to-get tables in New York. According to founders Ben Leventhal (Eater NY CEO) and Gary Vaynerchuk (Vayner Media founder and Uber investor), Resy is flipping the model of reservation service by offering “hot tables on tight timelines” and allowing restaurants to generate increments of revenue from them. It might sound a bit ridiculous to pay an extra $50 for a 8pm table on a Friday night, but if we are talking about the ultra-exclusive Sushi Nakazawa, sounds like there are more than a handful of New Yorkers willing to take up the offer.
