My Table is a fairly new concept in Amsterdam that was started by Australian chef Claire Sullivan and is changing the way people think of fine dining. The concept is simple. Claire and her team take over restaurants and other cool venues for one night only, and offer diners a food extravaganza at a random location somewhere in Amsterdam, awesome!
My Table began from Claire’s love of cooking and years of gathering people around tables all over the globe. She loved nothing more than creating enjoyable food in a casual and communal setting and so decided to bring this to the world with her pop-up kitchen takeovers.
The takeover can happen at any time but it is usually on a Wednesday night, offering diners a midweek indulgence at an unexpected location. Venues are extremely varied and in the past have included Tommy Hilfiger’s European Headquarters and Restaurant Fraiche. Here, My Table threw a Thai and South East Asian, 5-course tasting menu, which is one of the most popular cuisines since the launch of the concept, mmmm. My Table will next be popping up at the ‘Day of Architecture’, so if you fancy some delicious food to break up your big day then make sure you swing by.
Claire likes to experiment with her cuisines and so even if you’ve been to one of My Table’s events in the past, you can always expect something different the next time. Two of her most popular cuisines thus far are French and Indian, though she also has Japanese, Italian, Greek and British all on the menu. What we love most is that each event has a multi-course set menu so you get the chance to try various different dishes all in one sitting.
Tickets for My Table must be purchased in advance and can be done so at www.mytableamsterdam.nl. Here you will also find details of upcoming events and a bit more info about the concept. Prices for My Table vary but you’re usually looking at around £35 exl drinks. This might seem a little pricey at first but considering the amount of food that you get paired with the completely unique dining experience that the event offers, it really is worth going. Plus, as it’s a new concept not many people know about it just yet so tickets are relatively easy to get hold of...we don’t think this will be the case for long!
