“We’re a restaurant run by three chefs. We’re going to prepare you thoughtful, honest food without the fussiness of fine dining. In fact, we’re going to give you a new casual dining experience, altogether. Again and Again.” 

This statement appears in bold on the Table X website, and I think it sums up Table X beautifully. Rest assured, fussiness does not mean they have neglected any detail. From the interiors of the space to the clay plates the food is served on, you will feel like you are in a high end establishment, especially after you take your first bite.

The three chef owners, Mike Blocher, Nick Fahs and David Barboza have carefully crafted the menu to compliment the tastes of the season. Utilizing open space behind the restaurant to grow lettuce, herbs, beets and much more, the dishes evolve depending on what’s on hand.

In addition, they purchase an entire animal, such as the Berkshire pigs, and use it in recipes until it is gone. That said, one night your favorite dish may be on the menu, and on the next visit, it may not.

The dishes offered are fresh, and unique. The Red Beet Curry with brined cauliflower ($8) is the most beautiful shade of pink and has just a hint of curry flavor, enough to know it’s there.

And, lets talk about the Kimchi Egg ($10), because if you try it, you will want to talk about it. The perfectly poached egg is nestled on a bed of house made kimchi, then topped with crispy pork bits. A warm pork broth is then poured over the top at the table, turning into a soup of sorts. It is rich and spicy, with a hint of salt from the pork.

The Scallops ($25) are seared and placed on green cabbage and sprinkled with ‘vegetable dirt’, a dusting created from vegetables grown on site. A tasty, and unexpected addition to an already delicious dish. 

The Christiansen Farm Berkshire Pork ($32) is pressed and presented in the shape of a square. Interesting presentation, but full of flavor. The pork is accompanied with red cabbage and turnip pave, creating a combination of flavors that are very pleasing to the palate.

All three chefs contribute something unique to Table X,  from their culinary experiences and backgrounds, to their heritages. We as patrons, get the pleasure of experiencing what each has to share collectively, in a exceptional food experience.
