It’s not often that I can say that my mom has been to a restaurant before I have. But, with Addison’s new Table 13 she managed to go hear some music over the weekend for a small gathering they had before their big launch event.
A new era in fine dining, music and cocktails is about to emerge on the Addison restaurantÂ scene.
Table 13 is a unique dining and entertainment experience offering chef-prepared steaks,Â seafood, and specialty dishes. Guests will enjoy vintage-inspired food, beverage and serviceÂ in a distinctive, upscale atmosphere â€“ with a few unexpected surprises.
Table 13 is located at Belt Line and Inwood Road in the restaurant/bar mecca of Addison.Â Renovations are nearly complete and plans for pre- and grand opening events are beingÂ finalized â€“ including a three-day â€˜Fly Me to the Moonâ€™ Launch Event targeted for May 8-10.
â€œThis unique concept is the result of many late night brainstorming sessions and a lot ofÂ careful planning,â€ said restaurateur Mike McRae, whose vision for Table 13 grabbed theÂ attention of Gabe Nicolella, longtime business partner. Together, McRae and Nicolella haveÂ more than 70 years combined experienced in the industry, successfully operating upscaleÂ establishments like Daddyâ€™s Money, eâ€™lan, Nostomo, Rio Room and Studebakers.
â€œTable 13 will cater to a sophisticated crowd with discriminating taste in food and music,â€Â said McRae. â€œItâ€™s a period restaurant unlike anything else in the Dallas area. Itâ€™s more of anÂ experience, really.â€
The fine dining/music venue will showcase classic, showroom style entertainmentÂ reminiscent of 1960â€™s Vegas, with performances by the Marc Toussiant, Hunter Sullivan, Â Ricki Derek, Rodney Booth and Teddy Davey. There will be British Invasion Nights, andÂ solo performances by Goga, Scott Bucklin, Melani Skybell and Steve Stroud. The BabyÂ Grand piano will set the stage for an elegant yet casually comfortable dining experience -Â perfect for corporate meetings, group gatherings or intimate conversations. Table 13Â promises impeccable service served up alongside delicious appetizers and entrees forÂ lunchtime, dinner and late night crowds.
Table 13 will offer entrees such as Beef Wellington, Steak Diane, Chateaubriand for Two,Â Filet Mignon, Prime Bone-in Rib Eye, Lobster Fra Diavolo, Shrimp Scampi, Sea Bass,Â Chicken Cordon Bleu, and Three Bone Hand Cut Pork Chops.
