Service Industry Luncheon

August 14, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Table Asheville presents the final function in our community / charity based series. This one’s for the kids – the industry kids that is. With a portion of the proceeds going to CORE – – an organization that supports the children of food and beverage employees who are navigating life-altering circumstances or conditions. Reservations will be made exclusively for those working in the industry.

Reservations via text: 828.279.3088

Join the Table crew for a gathering that breaks the conventions of fine dining. We’d like you to enjoy a coursed luncheon with natural sparkling wine pairings – without pretention. If you are like us, you love good food and interesting wine. You like to talk about it, read about it, research it, experiment with it, serve it and enjoy it. However, after serving table after table, the fine-dining-formula gets a bit tired. With this luncheon, we invite you to play, to challenge one another, to test your palate and to have a damn good time.

Five courses are paired with natural sparkling wine served Chambong style. The wine service is ‘blind’. Each course comes with a tasting challenge. You’ll be testing your chops against your cohort’s, eating good food and letting the bubbles go to your head.

A post-dinner party at The Imperial Life features discounted bottles of bubbly, and gives abundant prizes to the leaders of the pack.
