VizEat: please take a seat at my table

Community table Vizeat_002

Dine with people you don’t know and share a table for an unforgettable moment, that’s the purpose of VizEat. The Tinder for foodie friendship.

Internet changed the way we travel. Hospitality sector has dramatically transformed. It is now community-driven based on comments and ratings. Sharing services are exploding. For my next trip to Marseille, I book a room in a house of 4, share a car from my hometown to destination and have a meal with local inhabitants on site.

These new web communities are excellent opportunities to live unique experiences and meet with locals. And if you might be reluctant to improvise a homestay accommodation (no space/no extra-bed), hosting a brunch or diner could be much easier. “Table is the first social network” say in unison Jean-Michel Petit and Camille Rumani, the co-founders of the website. Whatever the meal you offer, you just need a table, little imagination and strong will to start.

Our VizEat experience

First excitement. For the foodie I am, sharing my table sounded instantly awesome. Then reluctance. My husband didn’t hear it the same way at first. “Isn’t it weird to welcome some strangers at home?” And perseverance. I did subscribe on the website and register my first meal. But then I freaked out. “Will they like our food? Will we be ready on time?” And in the end, VizEaters arrived and magic operated. We finished the meal with four new friends we felt we already knew. Will we repeat the experience? Certainly yes. Will we book a seat at someone else place ? Certainly yes again!

  1. This idea has many merits on lots of different levels. I love the cultural bridges that can be built over food – and I love food!
    May the peace and joy of Christmas be with you throughout 2015.
