The cornmeal pizza was a delightful display of bacon, mozzarella, tomatoes and spinach, but the star of the dish was how the over-easy egg oozed over the pie to provide a rich sauce. Again, texture was key, as the crisp cornmeal crust soaked up the gooeyness of the egg and mozzarella without losing any crunchiness.

Another savory wonder was the dish of shirred eggs with spinach and gorgonzola, a sort of creamy egg fondue served with griddled toast points. The subtle barnyard tang of the blue cheese deepened the delicate egg flavor, while just the smallest crack of pepper added a tiny bitter bite.

This sampling does not even scratch the surface of the endless cornucopia of Vires' handiwork from which guests may choose at Table. On two visits alone, I had thirteen additional dishes. Some of these were fantastic: The tomato strata is so warm and gooey that it should not be missed, and Table's pork-belly and cheese-curd spin on poutine, the Canadian guilty pleasure of gravy-topped fries, is positively shame-inducing. Others, however, could be skipped. Table's cornmeal-coated take on macque choux, Louisiana's traditional corn and vegetable sauté, didn't do it for me, and although the smoked butter had a pleasant flavor, its texture was a little gritty. However, that's the beauty of a place like Table. With so many options, one is bound to find some favorites. And when you do, go ahead and share it with a "friend." You know, that stranger next to you at Table.

Sounds like a delicious meal altogether! I would love to try the fried-chicken and potato puree. As a matter of fact, I'm starving right now. I will have to try it out soon. Did they happen to have fries there as well? I have always wanted to go to a restaurant that has great fries, and cool sports memorabilia. That would be an awesome combination.
