A Sleek & Stylish Look For Table's Ethereal Vibe

slide
To say that Table — the new Shaw outpost from chef Frederik De Pue — is a labor of love is an understatement. De Pue has done everything himself, from crafting the menu to designing the ethereal, light-soaked dining room with a wall of fresh herbs and bare wood accents. But, let's not forget the food: A rotating menu of fresh, seasonal fare has already won over the city's critics, and the concept of a chef's-table-for-everyone is attracting foodies for miles. Before you high-tail it to Shaw to grab a seat, use our primer to concoct the perfect outfit: an easy, white-hot shift with a feminine, flowing jacket, paired with sleek and shiny oxfords to give it all some structure. A poppy cobalt bag and timeless earrings add the perfect dressed-up — but not overly so — polish. Bon appétit!
