Will be back on Open Table on Jan 7, 2019.  I think ditching OT in DC is very short sighted.

I am aware of at least one popular place in the DC suburbs that ditched OT and has been doing excellent.  They saved big on the $1/head for a direct reservation on OT.  At about a $25-35/per customer order that is a big hit.  OTOH I am aware of restaurants local and national that ditched OT and had to go back.   

For many OT became a default source for reservations.
