This week marked the opening of The Table at Season to Taste, a collaboration between Season to Taste's Robert Harris and Craigie on Main alum Carl Dooley (who is competing on the current season of Top Chef). The intimate restaurant is bright, warm, and cheerful. The restaurant opens up to a small standing-room-only bar area to the right with a view of the street in the front and the action of the kitchen behind. There's a small counter that runs the length of the bar area for diners to rest a glass on.
The highly visible kitchen is the focal point of the room, and it's surrounded by a bar that is beautifully made from a thick slab of a tree, artfully carved in spots. A few black, wooden, high-top seats are available here, prime seating for a kitchen view.
On the back wall, a giant painting of an Englishman — or perhaps an early colonial man — overlooks the tables, which sit comfortably below. A banquette runs along the wall with a white and chocolate brown pattern, a contrast to the white walls. Dark, wooden chairs sit opposite the banquette, and a rustic wooden table rests in between, leading all the way to the restaurant's second window in front.
Located at 2447 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, The Table at Season to Taste is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday. The menu is always changing, but here's what it looked like on opening night:
