Red Table, the sort of like-a-gastropub restaurant by the former Karl Strauss Culinary Director Louie Jocson, held its soft opening to friends and family this weekend. Today, it opens to the public starting at dinner.
As previously reported, the menu seems to rely heavily on appetizers, with deviled eggs, along with a number of flavor-topped fries, including one dubbed Bollywood with curry and chutney. There will also be babaganoush, roasted beets, grilled pork belly offered as small plates. Main courses come from sandwich dips, burgers, and plates featuring pan roasted chicken, braised short rib or salmon a la plancha. Expect beer, wine, and actual red tables.
