Chef's Table

The Table with a Story to Tell


There is nourishment that calms the pain of hunger. There is food for the palate that delights and fulfills. And then there is the experience of learning the art of preparing delicious food that feeds the soul.

The Chef’s Tables of Meyer Jabara Hotels combine the art of delicious and beautiful food preparation with the gift of engaged learning. What develops is an unforgettable dining experience worthy to keep a place in the treasured memories box.

In Reading, Pennsylvania Chef Tim invites guests into the heart of the Crowne Plaza kitchen. Tableside he prepares amazing selections such as Poached Orange Roughy or maybe Seared Duck. Each guest is a “friend” with whom he shares his tricks of the trade.

A few states over in Providence, Rhode Island Chef Franco opens his table at the Providence Marriott to lucky guests who want total immersion in learning from the hands of the master. Oyster selections, Smoked Pineapple Chili-Lime Salsa or even Butternut Squash Waffles with Maple Peppercorn Caramel might awaken the palate. Of course, at The Bluefin Grille, wine pairings and the understanding of that art is always included.

The Chef’s Table experience was launched in several Meyer Jabara hotels mid-2015. Today it is a most requested VIP offering. Besides Reading, PA and Providence, RI, Chef’s Tables are making waves in the Baltimore Inner Harbor – Pier V, Henderson’s Wharf and Admiral Fell Inn; at the Marriott in Stamford, CT; the Hilton in Ocala, Florida and at the Hilton in Christiana, Delaware.

Special occasions, corporate retreats, family celebrations, or food explorations…The Chef’s Table can be adapted to fit the specific needs of the quests. The common denominators are: tableside preparation, education, questions and answers, amazing food and drink, photo opportunities and a wonderful story to tell. Each Chef honors local food products from their specific regions, focusing on freshness, origins and sustainability.
