OpenTable, a web-app that allows users to book restaurant reservations has just bought out Foodspotting, another dining-passionate application. Foodspotting, something like a ‘Tumblr for eateries,’ allows uses to submit photos of food and post them on the establishment’s map location, where other users see it on a map and leave comments.

For $10 million, OpenTable seeks to be a one-stop food app, with plans to integrate both services while maintaining each unique brand. The two are no strangers, having started to incorporate each others’ services back in October. Currently, over 15,000 OpenTable restaurants are also featured on Foodspotting.

Ten employees from Foodspotting will join the OpenTable team, including CEO and co-founder Alexa Andrzejewski as the lead user interface designer.

Foodies, how’s this for a yummy business deal?
