Side Dishes: A Single Pebble launches iPhone app

Published June 15, 2011 at 6:33 a.m.


If you’re a fan of A Single Pebble and own an iPhone, you can now book a table or try your hand at the resto’s dishes via a new application.

Two hundred people have downloaded the three-week-old app so far, according to chef and owner Chiuho Duval. They can tap away at lunch, dinner, small-plate and drink menus, as well as view daily specials, make reservations via OpenTable and read recipes for some of the restaurant’s dishes — step-by-step directions for Orange Taste Beancake and Chrysanthemum Fish are in the first batch.

“I was surfing on my iPhone, and it occurred to me that it would be really cool to have A Single Pebble app,” says Duval, who plans to update the recipes once a month. “[The app] is also a connection with the customers, of course. But personally, I think it’s far more interesting for sharing the recipes.”

Duval checked out a few app builders before settling on Outspring. “I liked their style,” she says, and she worked with the firm to hone the look and feel.

Outspring is currently offering an “introductory special” of $1200 for a restaurant iPhone app on its website. Sounds like a trend.
