Also I love wine, so I was thinking about how to get back to that. Was there a question of whether you could split your time? How often do you come to Philly? The idea of not being physically present was hard but I wanted to spread word about the Table at a different level, have it be like a mothership. Dinners at the Table, I do a few a week.
French for flailing? Tallulah
We have a great staff, a culture, but there are three key players. Anna Pennington, who runs front of the house, has been with us eight years — she started as a barista. And Ryan McQuillan, the head chef. He gets it. Yes, but there are also always some cancellations.
A Friday or Saturday night, forget it. But on Tuesday or Wednesday, you can get in. We post cancellations in the shop and also on Instagram — or you can email reservations talulastable.
And then you can go see a band at a Kennett Brewing Company or just take an Uber home. Right now we have this calendar where everything is done by hand, someone calls at 7 a. I love the personal interaction. But I wonder if we listed the cancellations on OpenTable, if that would be useful. I would love to have a tiny boutique wine program at the Table. Another thing that could change in five years is we could drop the price of the dinner and showcase a different kind of experience.
Every once in awhile I joke we should just do BBQ for the next few months.
