Ur Table is Ready :-)

By Ally Betker

Everyone knows the worst part of eating out is waiting for the table. To address the annoyance, a Waltham-based startup, Textaurant, has developed a solution we wholly appreciate: a web-based wait list management application that sends patrons a text message when their table is ready. The company is the brainchild of Josh Bob and Dan Pickett, who met on the Boston entrepreneurship scene in 2009, and just landed its first big Boston client, Finale Desserterie and Bakery. Cheers to that, but wouldn’t it be nice if more hot spots signed on, too? Here are a few restaurants we’d love to see follow suit.
