James Beard Foundation Partners with Reserve to Offer Cutting-Edge Restaurant Reservation Management System
The James Beard Foundation (JBF), a prestigious culinary arts organization, announced a partnership with Reserve, a world-class restaurant reservation management system. Beginning October 11, the personalized hospitality technology platform will benefit guests in gaining access to coveted seats at the James Beard House by enhancing the overall digital booking experience. Guests can now book using Reserve for dinners taking place at the Beard House as of November 1.
“Partnering with a cutting-edge technology company to help streamline James Beard House reservations was key to our decision to partner with Reserve,” said Kris Moon, vice president of the James Beard Foundation. “Reserve’s user-friendly features and functionalities will provide members and non-members alike with an easy-to-use platform for booking seats while increasing the Foundation’s operational efficiency behind the scenes of the booking process.”
Since its launch in 2015, Reserve has seated over 24 million diners in all 50 states for 800-plus restaurants including some of the most buzz-worthy establishments. With more than 200 unique dinners a year in the heart of Greenwich Village, the Beard House will gain the ability to optimize seating and better understand its diners by using the Reserve system, allowing participants to enjoy an exceptional dining experience.
By using Reserve, the James Beard Foundation will bring more benefits to chefs that extend beyond the experience of cooking at the Beard House. This includes providing pre-event reporting so chefs can understand the diners to the extent they would in their own restaurants.
Reserve, whose clients also include Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Carbone, Cúrate, Frontera Grill, Lord Stanley, Manresa, Mission Chinese Food, Russ & Daughters, and the Fabio Trabocchi Group, among others, will also allow the Foundation to provide online early access to members of JBF for seats at sought-after Beard House dinners.
