Recessionary Dining: Table 31's Plaza Cafe To Rock 'To-Go' Menu Too

tableFirst it was Susanna Foo, who last week introduced ‘Gourmet To Go’ at her Walnut Street restaurant of the same name — a special menu of take-out and delivery items from Susanna Foo’s four-bell kitchen at "neighborhood" prices.

Now comes word that Table 31 will soon be expanding their offerings to include a 'To-Go' menu as well.

High-end restaurants offering less expensive (presumably) To-Go menus in order to pad sinking revenues (presumably) … this could be viewed as one positive consequence of the recession.

UPDATE:

From a Table 31 rep:
Table 31's Plaza Cafe is the outdoor cafe located in the plaza of the Comcast Center. It is only open during the warmer months (generally April-September). The Plaza Cafe (not Table 31) had intentions of facilitating a To-Go Menu/Service and off-site catering during the off-season.

Due to the on-going construction/repair to the Plaza Cafe, this was not possible this season. We have hopes of starting this additional service soon. Table 31 remains an upscale dining and special events destination with the off-site catering as a service available through our special events department. For more information, please contact Table 31 at info@table-31.com or 215-567-7111. Thank you!

As a representative for Table 31, I would like make a correction to this article. Table 31's Plaza Cafe is the outdoor cafe located in the plaza of the Comcast Center.
