Located in Jamaica Plain, Ten Tables sources its ingredients from local purveyors and builds its modern American cuisine around seasonal produce. Menu mainstays are an ever-changing charcuterie plate, as well as house-made pastas such as pappardelle with braised rabbit. With only 10 closely packed tables in the brick-lined dining room, the open kitchen is visible from every seat in the house. Smaller sister restaurant, TT Bar, located next door, has more casual high-top tables in place of the dining room’s white-linen tablecloths. The bar menu includes beer-steamed mussels and a burger made with naturally raised beef.
Reservations may seem like a must for the dining room due to its limited size, but Ten Tables saves space for walk-ins every night. Don’t nix stopping in just because you didn’t call ahead.
