Seattle Weekly's Description
Everything about Art of the Table is refreshingly unpremeditated. Chef Dustin Ronspies originally set up shop as a caterer in 2007 and started serving food a few days a week to lure potential clients. Passionate word-of-mouth turned his unlikely locationâpractically an underground restaurantâinto a cult favorite. Ronspies does his own shopping, churns his own ice cream, grows his own herbs, and, yes, washes his own dishes. Check the Web site (artofthetable.net) to see what heâs serving at his prix-fixe multicourse dinners, offered on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday alongside a la carte dining, or splurge Friday or Saturday on the house recommended Chefâs tasting menu. Whether seared spring mushrooms with gnocchi and parsnip puree or pork and bacon albondigas, itâs made by hand from market ingredients. Thereâs no dining without a reservation, since he only has 22 seats.
Tips from foursquare
For a more casual vibe, try the small plate, no reservation menus on Mondays and Thursdays. [Eater 38 Member]
Contemporary American-style comfort food two ways: "Supper Club" Th-Sat is like a private party, with a single seating for a four-course, prix fixe menu; and "Happpy Mondays" featuring small plates.
The menu changes regularly, take a chance and enjoy!
Dustin is the sweetest genius you'll ever meet.
One of the nicest dining places in Seattle. Dustin just goes to town in the most creative way and create a culinary experience that cannot be matched.
