What is Feastly?
peer-to-peer markets have a pre-lapsarian past, but few companies have made buying services from their friends and neighbors as easy as Airbnb. So, unfortunately, we have to designate a significant new venture called Feastly the, ahem, Airbnb of restaurants.
Feastly allows chefs to transform their homes into their restaurants without all the overhead and investment of a traditional restaurant. Conversely, it will enable diners an alternative to the traditional restaurant.
How does Feastly work?
It’s pretty simple: As a chef, you sign up on Feastly site. You decide the menu, the price, the date, the number of feasters you can handle, etc. Feastly fill the seats, handle the money, and take a modest 12% administrative cut.
As a diner, you browse and signup for dinners in your area (right now, your main markets are Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco). In preference to the restaurant, the Feastly experience rewards dinners with home-cooked meals and a unique social experience, or as Feastly co-founder Noah Karesh put it, “The dining table is the optimal social network.”

There are no apps available.
Feastly lets you take advantage of your in-house chef by reserving cooking meals for strangers in your own home or at one of Feastly’s locations.
On the other side of the coin, preparing and serving a larger group from an unfamiliar kitchen is also far more complex. Feastly is excellent for someone with catering experience, but newbies can start cooking for EatWith before moving on to Feastly’s more complex challenge.
