Looking to go out to dinner this holiday season or host a classy get-together with colleagues or friends? Table 13 in Addison offers a unique dining and entertainment experience for its guests that you will love this time of year!
According to its website, “Table 13 offers vintage-inspired food, beverage in service in a distinctive, upscale atmosphere reminiscent of the early 1960s. The unique concept is the vision of restaurateur Mike McRae and business partner Gabe Nicolella.” Think Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack; it’s an homage to the days of serving vintage-inspired food, a throwback to early 1960s Las Vegas.
On Thanksgiving Day, Table 13 will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. with seating available through 8 p.m. Whether you are dining with a date or a group, Table 13 is ready to take care of everything.
According to a press release by the restaurant, “Table 13’s vintage-inspired, prix fixe Thanksgiving menu will begin with your choice of Lobster Bisque, Seasonal Salad, Caesar Salad, or Table 13 House Salad; followed by Traditional Roasted Turkey Breast, Homemade Cornbread Dressing, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans Amandine, Homemade Gravy, and Cranberry Sauce. Round out the holiday feast with assorted chef-selected Thanksgiving desserts.” Some of Table 13’s regular menu items will also be available a la carte, as well as $5 Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s.
Guests will also enjoy live music by Melani Skybell from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and pianist Mike Nicosia from 4 to 8 p.m. Live music is a big part of the Table 13 experience. Mike once shared with me how he came up with the music concept for the restaurant and why it plays such a big part of the guest experience. “Growing up in the 60s, my parents were really big Dean Martin fans,” he said. “Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. They loved music and we had all these albums playing in our house all the time.” It is for this reason that each night you can have an amazing dinner and be serenaded by the amazing artists taking the stage like The Marc Toussaint Combo, which has been part of the live music lineup for quite some time.
Table 13 features three private dining menu options. These are available for dinner, with two private dining menu options available for lunch. As you plan for other holiday celebrations, call and ask about Table 13’s Continental Room. The space is perfect for holiday parties, as well as business meetings and special occasions. It features elegant sliding doors, a large private screen with full audio and video capabilities, special dining menus, and top-notch service. Table 13 has been voted as “Favorite Place for Private Group Dining” in our 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards, so you can rest assured that you and your family and guests will be treated very well.
Table 13 is open Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner and on Saturdays for dinner only. Their menu features delicious dishes such as Double Bone Hand-Cut Pork Chop, a 28 oz. bone-in pork chop with braised red cabbage, and house-made applesauce. The Steak Diane. which is an 8 oz. seared tenderloin served with shallots, mushrooms, and cognac cream sauce over roasted garlic mashed potatoes, or the Beef Wellington, a filet with garlic mushroom pâté, ham, pastry shell, peppercorn cream, and truffle demi. Of course, they also have a delicious 16 oz. prime ribeye or the giant Cowboy Ribeye for those with a bigger appetite. They are also able to customize a menu for just you and your guests.
Keeping Everyone Safe and Healthy
Over the summer, I had the chance to sit down with Mike to talk about how restaurants were staying safe during this pandemic. As we continue to live in this new “normal’”way of life, it is important to highlight how Table 13 continues to stay committed to keeping guests and staff safe. Not much has changed since that interview, with one of the only changes being that they are now able to seat at 75% capacity. Their staff continues to adhere to CDC guidelines, such as wearing face masks at all times, washing their hands frequently, and making sure to take their temperature before beginning their workday. They have also put up plexiglass shields between each booth and in front of the stage area. It may still feel weird to see these measures being taken even after seeing them for months, but one of the things Mike and the rest of the Table 13 staff are continuing to take very seriously is the safety and health of each and every guest and staff member.
These are uncertain times for sure, but they don’t have to be sad or depressing times. Celebrate each accomplishment, celebrate every holiday, create memories with your loved ones, friends, and co-workers. Make each celebration special.
