DAVID CHANG
 Current Status: Restaurant reservation revolutionary

 

Changed The Game By:  Using the Internet to democratize restaurant reservations.  When the two-time James Beard Award-winning chef opened the 12-seat Momofuku Ko in 2008, he forsook the elitism, manipulation, and tantrum-throwing usually associated with the reservations process, allowing diners to make reservations only online, on a first-logged-in, first-reserved basis. The result is New York’s most competitive -- and egalitarian -- dining experience.

 

Fun Fact:  Tech-savvy foodies tried to hack the reservation system before Momofuku Ko even opened. Commenters on the food website Eater suggested possible URL names, and eventually succeeded in finding the site while it was still in development.

 

Seen on Craigslist: "Hire my services for $40, and I will get you seats for 1, 2 or 4 at Momofuku Ko."
