Restaurants with in-kitchen dining tables?

plates on kitchen passDavid emails:

Do you guys know of any restaurants in the area that have dining tables set up in the kitchen, to see the kitchen in action? Like a chefs table type of setup?

The first place that popped into our mind was the bar along the open kitchen at Peck's Arcade in Troy. But we're guessing there are at least a few other spots around the Capital Region.

Got a suggestion for David? Please share!

Tara Kitchen in Schenectady

Rare Earth Wine Bar in Glens Falls has a chef's table; call in advance so you can pick how many courses.

The Crimson Sparrow in Hudson, when the patio is open. You won't regret it.

I think Cafe Capriccio still does this.

Fish & Game in Hudson, sort of. Get there early and nab the seat at the far right end of the bar and you have a prime view of Zac Pelaccio and team at work.

I will add that when I travel solo to San Francisco I seek out restaurants where I can watch the kitchen at work. (There are lots of them.) A wonderful entertainment that makes you appreciate all that goes into the food.

Unfortunaty, Rare Earth is in the process of closing down.

@JLD - Rare Earth Wine Bar is closing at the end of this month.

Isn't it hot eating in the kitchen?
I'd worry about catching on fire, hurt by a sharp instrument, or getting stained clothing!

Occasionally on Thursdays "Bake For You" on Delaware Ave in Albany does dinner service. They have tables in the kitchen.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
