Table Tours Partners with Havertown's Kettle for New Pop-Up Dinner Series

Share

Table Tours, Katy O’Gara’s progressive dining experience, is going to settle in for the winter over at Havertown’s Kettle. Since Kettle is only open for breakfast and lunch, Table Tours will take over that space for occasional pop-up dinners.

Look for an “Up & Coming” series that will allow unsung sous chefs to have their own restaurant for one night. There will also be a “Visiting Chefs” series featuring established chefs from the suburbs and the city. Also on the agenda is a wine-and-spirits pairing event and a gluten-free night with Brûlée Bakery.

O’Gara is particularly excited to offer sous chefs an opportunity to shine. “From my years in professional kitchens, I know that it can be frustrating to be a sous chef,” she shares. “They never quite have complete control over the menu. All successful chefs were sous chefs at some point. I really hope to find some people who are passionate about their culinary vision and confident that they can fill a room. There is a lot of opportunity, since these are one-night events.”

She continues, “If any interested chefs are reading this, feel free to reach out to me at features@tabletoursbytown.com.”

Why did she decide to lay down some roots at Kettle? Katie says, “I’ve loved Kettle since it opened. It has a welcoming, understated chic atmosphere, and the menu is great. The owner, Sarah Brautigan, is so friendly and such a hard worker. We plan on creating a more intimate, warm atmosphere for these nighttime events, with tablecloths, candles and curtains. We’ll use the current seating arrangement, as well as communal tables for some events.”

Can’t wait for the winter pop-up dinners? Table Tours has a calendar full of events to tide you over, including two upcoming nights out in West Chester. For more information or to book your next Table Tour, visit www.tabletoursbytown.com.
