OpenTable is the leading supplier of reservation, table management and guest management software for restaurants. In addition, the company operates, the world’s most popular website for making restaurant reservations online.

Editor| The company made $41.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. They make money by subscription and per-reservation fee.
What is interesting though is that India is still not covered. Now I looked up the web and couldn't find any site like this in India ( launched a product in 2007 that doesn't seem to exist anymore)

If the reservation process can be outsourced & revenue management systems put in place, this could be an awesome idea! any takers?

p.s. leave your comments on whether it could work in India.

Sangria (Spanish: sangría; Portuguese: sangria) is a wine punch typical of Spain and Portugal (the word means "bloody" in both languages).

* chopped or sliced fruit (often orange, lemon, apple, and/or peach; occasionally kiwifruit or banana),

* a small amount of added brandy, triple sec, or other spirits,
* gaseosa (carbonated water).


Because of the variation in recipes, sangria's alcoholic content can vary greatly. The ingredients in sangria vary, particularly in the type of fruit used, the kind of spirits added (if any), and the presence or lack of carbonation.
