Small Restaurants, Big Ideas

Tiny restaurants—some with just a single communal table—provide an intimate and exclusive experience for diners.

Talula’s Table, in the Philadelphia suburb of Kennett Square, serves an eight-course tasting menu at its lone wood table to groups of eight to 12 just once a night.

Beast, the newest project from Portland, Oregon’s alt-restaurateur Naomi Pomeroy, has two communal tables and a meat-centric prix fixe menu.

Ten Tables, an aptly named restaurant in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood, hosts bargain $39 wine dinners that focus on a specific region.
