Airbnb already hooks you up with bed and breakfast. Now it’s looking to expand into lunch and dinner.

The home-sharing site said Wednesday it will partner with restaurant reservation service Resy, allowing users to reserve tables without leaving the app.

The move marks the next step toward the startup’s ultimate goal of becoming a service customers can use to plan every aspect of their trip. In 2016, Airbnb launched “Experiences,” which allows users to book tours, concerts or other activities.

Through the partnership, Airbnb users will be able to make reservations at close to 650 restaurants around the country that have consistently been rated highly by Resy users.

Airbnb said its users have spent more than $6.5 billion at restaurants around the world over the past year.

In the coming months, Airbnb and Resy will be rolling out the reservation functionality overseas for international trips.
