What You’ll Eat at Table 8


Table 8 will open on May 6, but Govind Armstrong prepared preview meals all weekend long. The airy space has a wall of windows that overlook a garden with outdoor seating. For now, entrées range from $19 to $25 (check out the slideshow for photos), and smaller plates like sweet-pea salad with prawns go for $10 to $15 a serving. Cured meats and fish from the “salt bar” are about $4 for three pieces. There’s no final cocktail menu yet, but a house specialty is the Basil 8, like a vodka mojito with a splash of white-grape juice and ginger ale. (A Champagne attendant also hovered downstairs near the restrooms; if that’s a permanent fixture, we hope they find better setting.)
