The Kitchen Table Restaurant

[Guest Post from Roberta Scher of Koshereye.com]

From the moment I entered the The Kitchen Table Restaurant in Mountain View, California, it was obvious that I was going to have a special experience. My first impression was correct.

The Kitchen Table is located on “restaurant row” in the small town of Mountain View, California – in the heart of Silicon Valley. It is just a few miles from Palo Alto, and within a 40-­‐minute drive of San Francisco. Upon entering the restaurant, I was greeted by a welcoming staff, contemporary, creative decor and an innovative, but moderately priced menu. Only nine months old, the restaurant is an exceptional artisanal, upscale eating destination; one that focuses on fresh, California seasonal, made-­‐from-­‐scratch food, and kosher certified by the Vaad of Northern California.

My eating companion (yes my husband) and I ventured in for lunch on a Friday. Our goal was to taste many of the restaurant’s specialties. He started with a traditional chicken and matzoh ball soup; the vegetables were crisp, the matzoh balls delicious and the chicken plentiful. Next came the unique Koshuterie Plate, complete with a variety of smoked meats including pastrami, salami, lamb “bacon”, and duck “ham” alongside a pablano pepper -­‐-­‐ all prepared, cured and smoked in house. The lamb “bacon” and the duck “ham” were extraordinarily delicious and the pastrami, which is their most popular lunch item, was irresistible! Yes, we asked, but no, they do not yet ship! As we say at this time of year, ”it would have been enough” but, no it wasn’t! Next came a Portobello mushroom burger for me, and a hamburger for my meat-­‐loving husband. And shall I say that I stopped there? No I couldn’t -­‐ I absolutely devoured my fresh, hot sweet potato fries.

By the way, if you go (and you simply must if you are in the San Francisco area), in addition to the freshly made food, enjoy the wall décor. A large digital picture frame is mounted prominently on a frame filled wall (quite appropriate for Silicon Valley), and it is both entertaining and nostalgic as it continually shows old photos of multi-­‐ generational families sitting at their kitchen tables. You can send them your family photo too!

The new spring menu will be introduced after Passover, and can be accessed on their website.

In addition to lunch, the Kitchen Table is open for dinner, and also for Sunday brunch, and yes, reservations are accepted. I hope to be “comin’ round the mountain” again…next time for brunch or dinner!

From
the
moment
I
entered
the
The
Kitchen
Table
Restaurant
in
Mountain
View,
California,
it
was
obvious
that
I
was
going
to
have
a
special
experience.
My
first
impression
was
correct.
The
Kitchen
Table
is
located
on
“restaurant
row”
in
the
small
town
of
Mountain
View,
California

in
the
heart
of
Silicon
Valley.
It
is
just
a
few
miles
from
Palo
Alto,
and
within
a
40-­‐minute
drive
of
San
Francisco.
Upon
entering
the
restaurant,
I
was
greeted
by
a
welcoming
staff,
contemporary,
creative
decor
and
an
innovative,
but
moderately
priced
menu.
Only
nine
months
old,
the
restaurant
is
an
exceptional
artisanal,
upscale
eating
destination;
one
that
focuses
on
fresh,
California
seasonal,
made-­‐from-­‐scratch
food,
and
kosher
certified
by
the
Vaad
of
Northern
California.
My
eating
companion
(yes
my
husband)
and
I
ventured
in
for
lunch
on
a
Friday.
Our
goal
was
to
taste
many
of
the
restaurant’s
specialties.
He
started
with
a
traditional
chicken
and
matzoh
ball
soup;
the
vegetables
were
crisp,
the
matzoh
balls
delicious
and
the
chicken
plentiful.
Next
came
the
unique
Koshuterie
Plate,
complete
with
a
variety
of
smoked
meats
including
pastrami,
salami,
lamb
“bacon”,
and
duck
“ham”
alongside
a
pablano
pepper
-­‐-­‐
all
prepared,
cured
and
smoked
in
house.
The
lamb
“bacon”
and
the
duck
“ham”
were
extraordinarily
delicious
and
the
pastrami,
which
is
their
most
popular
lunch
item,
was
irresistible!
Yes,
we
asked,
but
no,
they
do
not
yet
ship!
As
we
say
at
this
time
of
year,
”it
would
have
been
enough”
but,
no
it
wasn’t!
Next
came
a
Portobello
mushroom
burger
for
me,
and
a
hamburger
for
my
meat-­‐loving
husband.
And
shall
I
say
that
I
stopped
there?
No
I
couldn’t
-­‐
I
absolutely
devoured
my
fresh,
hot
sweet
potato
fries.
By
the
way,
if
you
go
(and
you
simply
must
if
you
are
in
the
San
Francisco
area),
in
addition
to
the
freshly
made
food,
enjoy
the
wall
décor.
A
large
digital
picture
frame
is
mounted
prominently
on
a
frame
filled
wall
(quite
appropriate
for
Silicon
Valley),
and
it
is
both
entertaining
and
nostalgic
as
it
continually
shows
old
photos
of
multi-­‐
generational
families
sitting
at
their
kitchen
tables.
You
can
send
them
your
family
photo
too!
The
new
spring
menu
will
be
introduced
after
Passover,
and
can
be
accessed
on
their
website
www.thekitchentablerestaurant.com
In
addition
to
lunch,
the
Kitchen
Table
is
open
for
dinner,
and
also
for
Sunday
brunch,
and
yes,
reservations
are
accepted.
I
hope
to
be
“comin’
round
the
mountain”
again…next
time
for
brunch
or
dinner!From the moment I entered the The Kitchen Table Restaurant in Mountain View, California, it was obvious that I was going to have a special experience. My first impression was correct.
