The Table Kitchen & Bar Jersey City

Tucked away in Jersey City is a new restaurant that is, well, the bees knees.

The Table Kitchen & Bar Jersey City is an upscale American dining experience curated around Chef Daniel Latham’s signature American classic dishes that delight the eye as well as the palate. The Table Kitchen & Bar is situated in an area that is experiencing a wave of new investment and interest, including a bevy of new residential developments, New Jersey City University’s planned 22-acre University Place expansion project that will include a Performing Arts Center, and the 95-acre Bayfront redevelopment.

When we first arrived we met the bartender at the bar who gave us the background of Chef Latham started The Table, after closing his other restaurant The Latham House to start his venture. His truly loyal customers looked forward to this opening.

My guest and I tried two of our favorite drinks of the night at the bar before we got the Pica Pica (mezcal, lime jalapeno, rosemary, Himalayan pink salt) and Big in Japan (gin, yuzu, orange, Thai chili, basil, lemon). The Pica Pica had a nice bite, while the Big in Japan was citrusy and balanced with the thai chili.

Afterward, we received a tour of the restaurant, which included a beautiful event space. In the middle of the room, we found a large table of a slice of a tree. The tree is a 500 year old reclaimed acacia tree. It was gorgeous a perfect place to host an event.

A we waited for our appetizers, we tried The B.B. cocktail, a pink vodka, pomegranate with winter spice. The pomegranates were stacked so delicately on a wooden spoon, which was very unique. Our waiter called drink an “interactive cocktail” that customers to can figure out how they was to consume them. Also, we tried the House Sangria that really embodied the fall and winter season with brandy.

Then it was time to eat. We were really intrigued on our tour when they said that they had a pizza oven and make their own dough, so for appetizers we ordered their housemade Bianca pizza, which has cremini mushroom, ricotta, truffle drizzle. It was so delicious. Then to pair with it we had their hand-made burrata with basil pesto, tomato and arugula that we spreaded on garlic bread.

And of course, we had to have drinks with apps with this that including the under the table cocktails with drambuie, pineapple, lime, fernet branca, ango. It was one of the fruitiest fernet branca drinks – I’m aways a sucker for anything pineapple. We also had the Impeared Hoser had whiskey, pear lime, maple winter spice mist. This cocktail was exquisite and a work of art. The slice of pear used to garnish the drink was so delicate.

Then dinner came out and I had the shrimp & gnocchi pasta in a creamy tomato sauce, spinach, cremini mushrooms and shaved parmesan. It was very good. I’m such a pasta person but not one to typically choose gnocchi but I just found this dish to be divine. I loved how the gnocchi was cooked since it was very crispy. My friend had steak frites a poivre medium rare with brandy peppercorn cream sauce, served with skin-on fries. The meat melted in your mouth. Our server paired some tasty wines with both of our meals.

Then we had my favorite, dessert. We had the Table Toddy, served hot, is a rich and comforting creation, featuring ginger-infused apple cider, applejack whiskey, homemade whipped cream, and a touch of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. The drink is designed to keep you warm and cozy during the cold evenings, making it the perfect companion to your dining experience. Then we had the amazing bread pudding, which was out of this world. It’s truly a must-have if you go.
