Photo Essay: First Service at John Tesar’s The Table in Dallas

The Table has its own super-secret entrance. Photo by Desiree Espada.

Monday night our photographer Desiree Espada dropped by John Tesar’s inaugural dinner at The Table, the 12 8-seat tasting room next to The Commissary. The table was lined with friends including Jennifer and David Uygur (Lucia), Chef Bruno Davaillon (Mansion execuchef), Michael Flynn (Mansion sommelier), Tim Byres (Smoke), Teiichi “Teach” Sakurai (Tei-An), and The “Ubiquitous” Brad. Sarah Reiss from our staff was also invited. Here are the pictures Desiree managed to capture.

  1. Hey, isn’t Sarah Reiss a restaurant critic? That’s so cool that she got to meet all those chefs whose restaurants she’ll be asked one day to review!
