Tastemaker: Travis Lowry of SoonSpoon
Travis Lowry is changing the way we think about reservations. As co-founder of Boston-based startup, SoonSpoon, Travis partners with area restaurants to bring select last-minute reservations to the public. The idea came when Travis had to cancel a six-person reservation at one of his favorite restaurants. Given the last minute notice, the restaurant wasn’t able to fill his reservation. SoonSpoon was born.
The site aggregates day-of reservations at restaurants where you’d normally need to call weeks ahead. SoonSpoon notifies interested diners via email, text, and twitter. Currently, you can snag a table at Puritan and Co., L’Espalier and a handful of others.
