Yet another fabulous lunch at Table in Brighton, I’m left baffled at why the place isn’t busier – although admittedly I went for Monday lunch but still…
I first came to Table three months ago following a recommendation by @foodguardian. I booked for my husband’s birthday lunch and we paid £13 corkage to enjoy a special bottle of Chianti Classico 1985 Reserva. Every dish we had was an absolute delight, although I took no pics or notes which is why it has taken a second visit for a review.
Table is situated in the North Laines and is part of the new part-pedestrianised area of the town by Brighton Library.
I was there today for a lunch with a Brighton-based wine writer and so again brought some of our own wines – this time a collection of Spanish sparklers from my client, Codorniu.
It was served pan fried on a bed of bortlotti beans, fresh chilli and parsley. Wonderful!
For mains, I opted for the gnocchi. These are a world away from the freeze dried gnocchi you can buy in supermarkets and instead were plate of delightful fluffy moist potato dumplings with juicy cherry vine tomatoes, kalamata olives, basil and parmesan.
We ordered an obscene amount of sides, the courgette fritters and rocket salad being my personal faves, the only duff one being the paprika dusted onion rings which while monsterous in size were not so great on the palate. The onion felt a little undercooked and the batter, not quite delicate enough for restaurant fare, more pub grub.
Table is consistently good, with wonderful service and reasonable prices – considering the quality of what they serve and the clear thought and attention that has gone into every dish.
So all in all another fantastic lunch at Table, again I just have to feel bad for them it isn’t busier as they are doing everything right – spread the word it is a real find!
