Kitchen Table, great experience

After reading several good reviews about Kitchen Table in Henderson we (three of us) took the 15-20 minute drive to Henderson from the strip. The restaurant itself is tucked away in the corner of shopping center and not easy to recognize until you see the temporary signage the have hung outside. upon entering you are immediately struck by the amount of delicious looking pastries in the front with the kitchen immediately to its right and an expediting table in front. The dining room is attractive and spacious and will love it when the outside temperatures allow dining.

The three of us got the sausage sampler, smoked salmon and caviar blinis, and deviled eggs to start followed by three different egg benedict preparations and the french toast with foie. Loved the coffee, not the best I have had in Vegas but very enjoyable. The sausage sampler, with the two dipping sauces (maple syrup and a bourbon one) was fine, not great. The smoked salmon caviar blini were excellent bites and well delineated flavors. The deviled eggs were just ok. The thing that threw us off was how chilled the eggs were. I'm not sure this is a health department requirement, serving devil eggs chilled, but for this preparation it stunted the overall flavor profile of the dish.

The three different eggs benny war a bit of a mixed bag with the Pork Belly and Shorty better than the Country. The complaint about the country is while all the ingredients separately are great, we were not sure the biscuits held up well enough to act as a vehicle for eggs benny. Alone the biscuits were great but the one quality that makes a biscuit great, tender and flaky, detracted from the dish as a whole as the biscuit soaked up all the gravy and egg. I'd also say that the fried steak itself really lacked a great crust seeming a bit wet, as off the oil was not up to temperature for frying. Just my guess. Finally, the french toast and foie was fabulous. The caramelized pears with the nuts worked great with the toast and when you added the foie to the bit, simply bliss. My one gripe, which seems to many peoples complaint, was the minuscule size of the foie. At $22 they really need to step up the cut of foie to justify the fare.

Finally the best part of the meal was the staff and owners. Holy cow! What a pleasure it is to dine at an establishment that has such attentive, nice, proud, vibrant and beautiful people! From the bubbly hostess, wonderful waitress and nice owners, the Kitchen Table is what makes for the perfect start to any day in Las Vegas. I highly recommend, if you have transportation, making the trip to Henderson to start any day when you are in Las Vegas or if you live there.
