We are so excited to welcome our new neighbors at Tavern & Table. We snagged a few pics from their Instagram of the amazing food and it tastes as good as it looks!
One of my best girlfriends had a birthday last week, she didn’t want to do anything for her birthday and I agreed to keep it quiet and low key. I was surprised when she called and said that there was a lunch planned for fifteen women at the “new restaurant” on Shem Creek. We all know that having fifteen women at the same table is a waiter’s nightmare filled with individual checks and “can I get that a little different?” and “Excuse me, can I have another piece of lemon?” But these women were amazing and Tavern and Table was amazing.
Tavern and Table is two doors down from my store so that is a no brainer for me. I was looking forward to checking out the new kid on the block and having lunch with my best buddy. Running late as usual, I blasted through the front door of the restaurant to a beautiful wood hallway of wood and crystal chandeliers… very upscale and chic. We gathered by the hostess stand and were taken to a wonderful long table in the corner with incredible views of Shem Creek, an amazing area that Mount Pleasant is known for.
Our waiter was fantastic; he calmly addressed all modifications with humor and a smile. There was only one, from the birthday girl, that was a little out of reach. He said he would have to ask the chef and see what SHE said.
Hey…chef is a woman….your stock with me just went up!
The food at Tavern and Table was so good that, I kid you not, there was not one thing left on any plate when it was all said and done. The girls made fun of me for ordering a salad and a side of brussel sprouts, then fought over my brussel sprouts. I highly recommend Tavern and Table and I really look forward to warmer weather when they can roll up the fun glass doors… but I’ll be back a few times before then.
