Even the best restaurants have empty tables sometimes because of quiet weekdays or reservations that don't show up.

The American Savored.com is doing something to fill those empty seats and also offers consumers a discount. Guests can go to the website and find an app to show where the empty seats are in their neighbourhood and make their reservations online. The participating restaurants offer these quick reservations a discount of 30% to 40% of their total bill. Contrary to discount coupons, only valid for a certain time like Groupons, these offers are just for tables that were not occupied for a specific evening. Very convenient for the tech-savvy guest and the restaurant with last minute cancellations.
