Dinner Party

I recently heard about these two great restaurants, Talula's Table (Kennett Square, PA) and Family Supper (Portland, OR), and I think Kansas City needs something of this type. The idea is simple but genius: one meal (several courses), served once a day to 10-20 people, everyone sits at one table and is served each course at the same time, reservations required. I LOVE it. It's like a giant dinner party every night, and really puts the focus back on creating awesome food.

Sadly, Family Supper has closed it's doors after the separation of it's husband/wife owners, but Talula's Table is alive and thriving. By day, Talula's Table is a gourmet food shop, but at 7:00pm nightly hosts a group of up to twelve for a gourmet, eight course chef's tasting menu. The only catch? To score a reservation you have to call at the shop's opening, 7:00am EST, and hope to be one of the first callers to book...for one year from the date of your call!!
