Chef's table question (and Lightfoot)
- Dennis S Jun 19, 2012 08:38 AM
For my wife's b-day I'm interested in taking her to Lightfoot, and I had previously noticed they have a chef's table. I almost did a chef's table about a decade ago, but never have.
Can anyone enlighten me about general practices involved with a chef's table, and certain things I should/could ask for or do? Any specifics on Lightfoot's would obviously be welcome.
I've never been impressed by the food at Lightfoot, and my last experience there might well have been my last. They served a perfectly cooked piece of white fish on top of a rich, viscous, vinegary sauce that was surely intended for some kind of (terrestrial) meat.
Consider heading to the chef's table at Volt (in Frederick, MD) instead .Alternatively, while I'm unaware of a chef's table, the restaurant at Patowmack farm will provide a very nice, much more inventive meal.
Thanks for the report. I think Frederick is a bit too far for our needs, and last I knew there was a very long wait list, but it's a good idea. I'll check out Patowmack Farm. On a neighbor's rec, I was also thinking of L'Auberge Chez François or our other standby BlackSalt, but there was an incredibly overly confusing conversation about a chef's table when I called BlackSalt. Love the place, but I think whoever I talked with wasn't picking up what I was laying down.
