For those of us not in Aspen at Food & Wine the question is where will we eat this weekend. For me the answer is simple. Table 6. On Tuesday I accompanied the kitchen crew of Table 6 to Williams Sonoma for a book signing with Thomas Keller. TK, as he is known in kitchens around the world, is an iconic chef having started the French Laundry in Napa and Per Se in New York City. For cooks it’s the equivalent of a basketball fan having face time with Michael Jordan.
Scott, Carri and the other line cooks carried books, hats and oven mitts to be signed. They waited impatiently for over an hour, as they knew there was much to be done before the doors at Table 6 opened at 5:30. The chefs had prepped hard and fast earlier in the day so they could meet Thomas and get back in time for service. They were cutting it close, but missing an opportunity to meet Thomas Keller was unthinkable. Finally it was their turn. A few brief moments with him, a few photos and it was done. They walked away smiling and inspired. They are a dedicated and passionate crew of cooks that make food with love and vision; which makes Table 6 my recommendation for dinner this weekend.
Try the Green Goddess soup, the tots, the knife and fork artichoke dip and don’t miss pairing your meal with wines from Aaron Forman’s list. If you can’t make it for dinner check it out for Sunday brunch. Table 6 – 609 Corona Street – 303-831-8800.
