Chef Frederik de Pue’s announced this week that Table will start serving brunch beginning April 20.
The restaurant, originally an auto repair space, has been restored to a contemporary dining establishment with modern decor with a storefront patio and rooftop deck for seasonal outdoor seating. At 903 N Street NW, Table opened this year during inauguration weekend.
Table will offer a Saturday and Sunday brunch with a prix fixe menu of $34 that includes three courses and will be served from 11 am to 2 pm.
The menu will include honey baked danishes and Nutella brioche, Warm Duck Salad with pomegranate dressing, Baked Eggs en Cocotte with mushrooms and chard brunch with libations available a la carte including Mimosas ($12) and Laurent Perrier Champagne with Hibiscus flowers ($22), in addition to the wine and beer selections. Menus are seasonal.
Table opened its doors at 903 N Street NW the weekend of the presidential inauguration. Located just a block away from the Convention Center, the restaurant was slammed with eager diners — even with its sidewalks blocked off for security.
Since that incredibly busy weekend, Chef and owner Frederik de Pue was able to catch his breath and dish with us on his new Shaw restaurant.
From its simple and seasonal European selections, to handwritten menus, open kitchen and cozy space, Chef de Pue designed Table to make his customers feel at home.
De Pue decided to make Table a reality a little less than a year ago, right around the time he acquired his two-story Shaw location.
Since then, he’s had his hand in all of the design and style elements of the 46-seat restaurant — originally an auto repair shop — including hanging reclaimed hardwood floors from the ceiling.
“Everything was hand touched,” he said. “I thought it would be a great idea to hang (the floors) from the ceiling, so I started hanging it with wires. It looks very easy, but it isn’t. It’s a good final product. I am very pleased.”
Chef de Pue mentioned that so far, his customers have really liked the simplicity of the design, as well.
“They love it — they come in and their neighbors are here waiting for them,” he said.
The interior is minimal with light wood tables, white rustic linens and silver.
The menus, which change frequently based on seasonal availability, are handwritten in notebooks, stashed in a hanging herb garden by the front door.
Food options range. De Pue offers everything from the somewhat expected (mussels, salmon and monkfish) to the unexpected (Bison hanger steak, burgundy snails, frog legs and stuffed squid). Ricotta fritters and pumpkin bread pudding make an appearance for dessert.
The bar offers craft beer and about 20 wines by the glass, including a small selection of Champagnes. Cocktail lovers be warned, there is no liquor.
Table is open Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, visit the website.

He says “We’re all very ready and excited to get people in to experience the space, to taste the food we’ve been working on, and to enjoy themselves at our new spot.”
The restaurant’s handwritten menus will change frequently to reflect fresh produce and quality meats available from local and regional purveyors. Sample menus are available on the website. For more information on Table’s follow the restaurant on Twitter or Facebook.
