Just got back from The Chef's Table and felt that I should share my experience with others either living in Chatham or visiting. I guess my first impression wasnt great. You pull into a plaza and book-ended by a variety store and a tavern you find 'The Chef's Table', talk about a diamond in the rough. Once you get inside tho, you completely forget about where you are. The decor was quite nice, music was ummmm i guess easy listening, what are they going to do though play the Black Keys or maybe Wolfemother? So I look over the menu and toy with the idea of ordering the risotto, maybe the salmon, naaah, I decide to play it dangerous and let the Chef decide. So I order the "Chefs Mood" and was then asked if I had any food aversions or allergies. Told her I couldnt stand eggplant and wasnt very keen on lamb, that was it. So, I'm not a foodie so I can only give very brief descriptions of what came out. The first of four courses was an Gnocchi dish with some bacon. A little to buttery for me but I also eat my bread dipped in oil and vinegar, still quite good. The second Course was the Salad. Leafy greens mixed with strawberries, bocconcini(which i think the chef made because I've had store bought versions and they were never that good or soft) and roasted almonds. The whole thing was fantastic. Next was the main entree. A veal w/capers, pearl onions, roasted potatoes and zucchini(I think it was zucchini, like i said i'm not a foodie). Really really tasty. Last but not least was dessert. I think it was called Amaretto tartuffo (Sure about the amaretto part but not the tartuffo part-was like Ice cream) with fresh strawberries and sauce. Talk about building to a crescendo....definitely a nice finish to an already great dinner.
Would I go back again? Yes!
Would I take family and friends? Yes!
Would I order the Chef's Mood again? Yes, but only on an empty stomach!
