So I heard about this app through a friend... In one sentence I would describe it as well overdue, and similar to Uber but for FOOD at really sweet restos. They are with 18 restaurants in Montreal and over 70 in Toronto where the app originated.
It's called Tab Payments. So, basically, when you're hungry and want a cool nearby dining experience, you open the app. It shows you a list of restaurants ordered by proximity to you- and there are so many delicious options. Most of my favourite, go-to restaurants, too! The Good Son, Byblos, Valdez, Thompson Diner, Gusto 101, Colette, TERRONI (which is always a good idea), and even the Windsor Arms! For each resto, you can click and learn all their info, even a presh little background story. Plus you can make a reservation right then and there.
At Terroni this summer, back in the prehistoric era where we were served by pterodactyls and paid with a credit card machine.
We tried it out last night, just for fun. It was so great! We made the reservation through the app so our table was all ready when we arrived. The staff already knew our names and that we were using Tab to pay. When the bill came, we reviewed it and said yep- looks great and our servers like 'alright then, thanks guys, see you again!', and then we each got a receipt emailed to us and that was IT. Chill AF.
Reasons why I think this was amazing:
Last night at The Good Son, after some Good pizza & aloe cocktails.
On top of all that, they personally sent us an email to see how our experience was. This evolved into a conversation (mostly, one-sided, me praising their app and its potential with travel and tourists, etc). Eventually they were like wow okay thanks ma'am that's really nice.. Why don't you share this promo code with your Canalien Community and they can try it out too and get $20 off their first order.
HAPPY FRIDAY CANALIENS! Cheers. Treat yourself... responsibly ;)
Thanks Tab! #CanalienLyfe
The Love Affair Collection stems from a personal Tale of Two Cities. Mainly because it involves a character named Sydney, a couple cities and tbh it rly was "the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness".
I made this collection for other Canaliens who may have left part of themselves in another city, too. I feel ya! Be proud of your nomad-icity.
