When Eddy Lu and his business partner moved to Chicago to open a restaurant, they realized they didn’t know anybody in town.

Rather than hit the loud, crowded bars every week, Eddy and his friend decided to do what any good creative entrepreneur would do: make a business out of meeting new people. They launched a few months ago and their social dining experience has been gaining traction ever since. Grubwithus offers a “social dining” experience which helps build friendships over great meals at some of Chicago’s best restaurants. It offers an OpenTable-like experience where instead of booking just one table, you can book an individual seat at a table with other social diners.

Watch the video interview with Eddy Lu to learn how he turned an all too common situation around into a successful business.
