If you have not checked out the Long Table Series yet then you have probably been missing out on one of the city’s best value. With the LTS starting up again, now is the time to take advantage of some damn fine home-style cooking. Make sure to act fast as certain nights/dishes sell out very fast.
The whole concept of a communal table is new(ish) to North Americans. We tend to be a little more reserved, more shy, more private when it comes to dining and usually prefer to sit at a table that offers some degree of privacy to the guests. In Europe however eating is a social affair and many restaurants including Clift Hotels Velvet Room in San Fran have openly embraced this meet thy neighbour style of eating to huge success.
Don’t worry, no one is forcing to strike up conversation. Everyone IS there for the food don’t forget.
Look for the Long Table Series at the Irish Heather to serve belly warming dishes and a pint of beer throughout the fall and winter with prices in the $15-$17 ballpark.
Take a gander at some recent offerings below:
Roast Suckling Pig, Apple-Rosemary Sauce, Braised Cabbage & Potatoes 16oz Pint Orchard Hill Cider.

The Long Table Series (LTS) is an intimate gathering of friends, old and new, along our 40 foot communal table. Like coming home to “Sunday Dinner,” but without the clean up.
