Twelve hundred and eighty tables
Last Friday fellow Metro Blogger Aradia and I stopped into Table 1280 before watching the Golden Dragon Acrobat Circus in awe (sorry, no…shock). Table 1280 is the restaurant at the newly expanded Woodruff Arts Center. We decided to eat there out of convenience so I wouldn’t have to park twice. I’m glad we did, the food was excellent. I started with the Baby Field Greens salad then moved on to the Bison with a side of Lobster Mashed Potatoes. I finished off with the Georgia Apple Galette. I usually don’t do dessert, but the food was so excellent I couldn’t pass it up. The crowd was mostly older with some kids here and there. As for decor it was very bright with lots of overhead lighting. They also had multi-colored fluorescent tubes on the wall in the dining room. I didn’t care for them but it was unique. The water glasses, condiment shakers and silverware were cool. I usually don’t pay much attention to details like that at restaurants, but the food was so good it made everything else interesting. The vibe was bustling with some bad techno playing in the background. The staff were very friendly and didn’t have a snobbish attitude, which I half expected. Our waiter was awesome – ask for Matt if you go, you won’t regret it. We won’t be heading back anytime soon though. It’s not that we didn’t have a good time but close to $200 after tip is a little out of my comfortable price range. So if you want to impress a date, are rich, or can write it off I recommend giving it a try.
