BREAKTHROUGHS— OpenTable now has a new ap for the iPhone. Per the release: "OpenTable for iPhone allows diners to check the real-time availability of multiple restaurants in the area, get the restaurants’ location, make free, confirmed reservations, and then follow directions to the restaurant."

MIDTOWN EASTCore Club, an exclusive members only club with a restaurant set up by Tom Colicchio back in '03 may be in a rough patch: "In return for their investments, founding members received free annual dues worth $15,000 a year, plus credits and discounts on use of the facilities. They were supposed to get their money back after five years." The five years are up, and investors are still waiting. [NYP]

OZERKISTAN—And just because we oh so enjoy hearing Cutlets discuss his love for cream sauces ("I could eat them every meal"), a video of the meat man and his new favorite chef, Andrew Carmellini, making tagliatelle alfredo. [TFB]

GIMMICKS— A new gimmick from Papa John's: "If Papa John's thinks that they can buy our Facebook friendship by offering us a free medium pizza with any online order...they're completely right. The free medium pizza is a new promotion to generate social networking buzz, and 10,000 users have already signed up, probably rubbing a collective hundreds of gallons of free garlic sauce all over their bodies as we speak."
