What is The Social Table?
So glad you asked.

Our humble beginnings involve a small basement kitchen near Times Square where Rebecca (our owner) began teaching the fine people of Manhattan to stop using their ovens to store sweaters and instead, use them to make delicious food. With the dream of being in the kitchen surrounded by friendly faces every night, she started The Social Table in order to bring people together through food and drink. After five successful years she (and The Social Table) decided to move out of The Big Apple and onto The Windy City.

Our goal is to recreate Rebecca’s best memories of growing up – a group of people all sharing in a meal – making it, eating it, talking about it and hazily remembering the good things about it the next morning. At The Social Table we get everyone together in the kitchen to laugh, nosh, drink, chip in, chop, sauté, cook, drink, sneak a bite, plate, shove their faces, drink a little more and find a way to make room for dessert. This is our perfect night, wouldn’t you agree?
