|The Vegetable Steak from the Chef's Tasting Menu|
|We started our meal with lovely cocktails|
Located inside a 1930's brick storehouse and cheese factory, Table X is a sophisticated addition to the Brickyard neighborhood. I dig the fact that there's plenty of parking and it's not downtown. Suburbanites need a fancy restaurant too! The design is stunning - modern with classic historical elements. I especially love the booths - they're super deep and really tall, offering a semi-private dining experience. Surrounded with walls of quilted black leather, I've never felt so comfortable eating and drinking in public.
There's a garden out back providing produce, herbs and edible flowers year-round. "The garden is a key part of what we are doing here." says chef and co-owner Nick Fahs. "It reminds us of the seasons, and what can be produced and preserved for other times during the year." The garden is also the focal point of a private dining area with floor to ceiling windows. The three chefs behind Table X, Mike Blocher, Nick Fahs and David Barboza, are dedicated to creating a top tier culinary experience with a menu driven by the seasons. I'm looking forward to visiting again to see what vegetable delights they come up with.
|It starts with bread - delectable, melt-in-your mouth bread with a dollop of cultured butter.|
The Chef's Tasting Menu ($55) is a perfect way to sample the menu. To keep the flow of service going, all parties at the table need to order the tasting menu. With a vegetarian option alongside the omnivorous option, it was no problem for my husband and me. The wine pairing (three glasses) is an additional $20. The portions were small, but I left feeling full and happy. And a little tipsy.
Since the menu is seasonal and focused on the vegetables growing in their garden, you can expect different dishes. Here is what I enjoyed in the late fall.

|This was a fun pumpkin-y amuse bouche!|
We ordered coffee to go along side with dessert, a lovely chocolate tart. It was a sweet end to a fabulous meal.
