After months of delays, Table opens in Shaw

De Pue's motto: "As the seasons change, so will Table's menu."

Shaw has gained its newest restaurant — a farm-to-table eatery built in a former car repair shop.

Table, from chef Frederik de Pue, is located at 903 N Street NW, and will seat about 50 people in its 2,100-square-foot space. Jennifer Motruk Loy, de Pue's publicist, says the restaurant will officially open Friday January 18.

Shaw’s up-and-coming reputation was one the main reasons de Pue chose to open his first restaurant in the area, Motruk Loy says. 

“[Shaw] is getting a lot of attention now,” she says about the neighborhood, which has changed much in the past decade. “[It] was recently named one of the most exciting areas for nightlife and dining in the city.”

De Pue's first solo restaurant project opens almost six months later than projected -- it was originally slated for summer 2012 --  because of permit and renovation delays, Motruk Loy says.

Table’s menu will offer first courses like frog legs pad Thai style, and main courses such as king salmon in an endive persimmon vinaigrette. 

Belgian-born de Pue arrived in Washington in 2001 and became executive chef of the European Commission Delegation Ambassador. Since then, he found success as executive chef of Smith Commons, an H Street NE restaurant.
