OpenTable knows...

OpenTable's policies about tracking diners have never been particularly clear to the average diner, but Dino's Dean Gold writes into the Tom Sietsema chat to share some intel about them.

Salmonella scare

Several diners have been admitted for medical care with salmonella-like symptoms. All had visited Fig & Olive recently, though not all had eaten food there. The health inspector hasn't found any issues there. [WaPo]
