dinnerNOW.com announces the launch of the dinnerNOW.com web site with the Internet's largest database of U.S. restaurants and the first FREE national telephony-based reservation system.

dinnerNOW.com's pioneering new service enables consumers to make restaurant reservations via the Internet to virtually any restaurant in the U.S. that accepts reservations. Restaurants need only answer the telephone.

To make reservations, the user simply logs onto the dinnerNOW.com web site, selects a restaurant, and dinnerNOW.com's proprietary reservationNOW system confirms the reservation request in real-time as well as by e-mail. The web-based reservation request generates a telephone call to the desired restaurant which responds through the telephone keypad to the system's voice prompts. Users receive confirmation of the reservation by email as well as by telephone, fax, and/or pager as desired.

dinnerNOW.com allows the consumer to quickly and easily locate virtually ANY restaurant in the U.S. including Starbucks Coffee Company (Nasdaq:SBUX - news) and fast food establishments. Once a restaurant is selected, the consumer can request a reservation, generate a map, rate the restaurant, read recent reviews, or simply view a menu (if available). And, as more restaurants send their menus to dinnerNOW.com, consumers will be able to quickly place orders for takeout or delivery using dinnerNOW.com's exclusive takeoutNOW(TM) and deliverNOW(TM) services.

Commenting on the launch, Lawrence Goldberg, Chairman of the Board of dinnerNOW.com said, "each day, most of us ask 'what's for dinner?' and dinnerNOW.com provides the consumer with a fun and easy way to make that decision. dinnerNOW.com not only makes it possible to find restaurants by cuisine type and location, but will soon allow consumers to search even by menu item." Goldberg added, "Say, you're in the mood for Kung Pao Chicken or a Linguine Vongele, you can find all the restaurants that serve these items near you. That's exciting to consumers and restauranteurs alike, both of which focused-grouped very well with this concept."

"The dinnerNOW.com web site does not require the restaurant to change the way it does business, which is critical for the mainstream restaurant," according to Kenneth Traverso, President of dinnerNOW.com and professionally trained chef. "The great thing about this web site is that it's way more than pizza and a small network of member restaurants. The site handles searches quickly (even for Starbucks), and is geared for your everyday dining needs!"
