The new 40-seat upscale restaurant, Chef’s Table at Kensington Riverside Inn, is one of the great gems of the property. The room itself features an open kitchen design where guests can witness the talents of Executive Chef Jeff Park and his team at work. Decor includes dark brown Poltrona Frau leather chairs from Italy, white Frette linen tablecloths, a stylish and distinctive navy-blue Carostan carpet and rich estate-grey walls with elegant trim.
While the design exudes luxury, the focus is on the culinary experience at Chef’s Table. Patrons may enjoy the five-course tasting menus or order “à la carte.” Wine selections specialize in smaller eclectic producers that pair up brilliantly with the Chef’s selections. Menus are updated regularly, so please check the Chef’s Table Menus pages for the latest menus. Dining at Chef’s Table is a feast for the senses indeed.
