Elusive Tableside Service and Where to Find it in Dallas

caesarby Steven Doyle

There is simply nothing more elegant and festive as tableside service. We are talking the classic Caesar Salad tossed in full view of the guest, at their table and with great finesse.

What could be more fresh and flavorful than a dessert or salad  finished off right before the diners’ eyes? This said, there are still many restaurants across the country creating delicious dishes tableside, and certainly to rave reviews. Continue reading
