Tables Restaurant Review

: Chef Amy Vitale and her husband, Dustin Barrett, took a dilapidated storefront and transformed it into a shabby chic restaurant that lures everyone from hip, stroller-toting mothers to canoodling couples. The eclectic décor, a charming romantic assemblage of weathered tables, hardwood floors and mismatched chairs, is warm and comfortable and completely devoid of pomp and circumstance. The two chefs showcase seasonally-inspired dishes such as crisp-edged sweetbreads with root vegetables and bacon; pan-seared scallops straddling green chile risotto spiked with house-made sausage; or rainbow trout, paired with a wild mushroom sauté along with celery root, apples and braised endive. Sweet finishes include double chocolate s’mores and cranberry sticky toffee pudding. The esoteric wine list is modest in size but big on boutique bottlings and wines by the glass.

What a disappointment to visit one of my favorite restaurants and walk away completely unsatisfied. Tables was, and I repeat was, a comfortable and excellent neighborhood restaurant, five star all the way. And then one day 5280 gave them a rave review and zip, zap, splat...We have a mediocre culinary experience that can not be recommended to a living soul. WHAT HAPPENED, was my gastrointestinal query?? Utter disappointment engulfed my senses. Another old reliable destroyed by 5280.

So here's how the evening went: I ordered the Baby Green salad with cucumbers and Balsamic dressing. I couldn't eat it, and believe me I can eat! The dressing was metallic in taste and overwhelmed the taste buds, it made me gag. I ordered the Pepper Steak with gorgonzola potato's au gratin. Wow, I order the steak medium and go it it rare, the potatoes were raw and leaden with a ton of gorgonzola, next time skip the potato's and give me a side of gorgonzola. For dessert, freshly baked berry pie. Hold on to your hat, this isn't Aunt Cordy's homemade berry pie! Someone has liberally spiced it with nutmeg to the point of obliterating any berry taste. Has anyone heard of spicing to enhance not detract from flavor?? Someone needs to talk to the chef!!!

OK, so here's my advise: DON'T DO IT!!! If you want to pay $100 per person to go out to a well established, consistent five star, restaurant; Leave this one alone!!! Of course it is your choice, you might not have anything else to do with your money and you might be starving to death.
