First ever Corner Table at Cafe Presse

Last Tuesday, January 31, 2012, Cafe Presse launched The Corner Table.  The Corner Table was conceived as a quarterly event that celebrates simple seasonal food and the conviviality of the table.  The event features a fixed price, three course menu served family-style.  Each course was accompanied by French country wines selected by Cafe Presse wine director Marcel Boulanger.

The kick-off event last Tuesday was sold out and the guests I spoke to were universally appreciative of the format and looking forward to the the next dinner.  If you are interested in getting information about the next Corner Table, please visit the Cafe Presse website and sign up for our newsletter.

In the meantime, here are a few photos of last Tuesday’s event:

  1. As appetizing as each course appeared, and contrary to what the photo looks like, we didn’t really attack it. In fact, having been to several dinners with ‘community’ seating and/ or family style service, the attendees at this event were some of the most well mannered and interesting I’ve seen. I personally, can’t wait for the next one!
