The restaurants and bars in Uptown Dallas have always something in common: food is less important than the vibe, the bar, the scene. All of them aim to attract the hot and young with special mimosas and girl’s night out promotions. Because of that, The Common Table and its quite ambience is an oasis. In the three occasions I visited the restaurant in the last weeks I had meatballs (just ok), a great arugula salad (simple, as it should be) and tried an outstanding salmon from a friend’s plate. The bruschetta goes well with the good white wine selection they bring and one day, after a hard run on Katy Trail, the cold beer brewed in NY, was just heaven. Bad choices: chicken rib-eye and kind of boring short-ribs.
I hope The Common Table remains like that: nice and quiet. Don’t spread the word. Not yet.
