Local restaurateur Sami Ladeki has introduced an exciting new concept, Table 89, a fast-casual dining experience that debuted this week at 7160 North Durango Dr. in Centennial Hills (Pictured: Shrimp Tofu Curry Bowl).
“Like our other restaurants, Table 89 serves fresh and flavorful cuisine,” said Ladeki, owner and founder of Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill. “What makes Table 89 different is the convenience of fast service; with countertop ordering for guests.”
An ode to Ladeki’s first restaurant, which opened in 1989, Table 89 serves a wide selection of new small plates, soups, sandwiches, entrees, salads, pizzas, pastas and desserts. Like all of Ladeki’s restaurants, Table 89 uses local, organic and nutritionally-balanced ingredients to create globally-inspired cuisine. After ordering and paying at the counter, guests may either take their food to-go or take a number and dine at the restaurant. Ladeki worked hand-in-hand with Corporate Executive Chef Jeff Moogk on the menu for his newest concept in dining.
“We wanted to create the type of food where families could stop in and order healthy meals on-the-go,” says Moogk. “We’ve worked in this business a long time and feel like this is something diners are looking for in our busy world.”
Table 89’s menu includes salads, priced starting at $8, including the Thai shrimp salad, made with organic Bibb lettuce, romaine, bean sprouts, organic spinach, peanuts, tomatoes, green onions, carrots, mint, crispy wontons and a spicy ginger dressing; and the market salad, a mix of tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, radishes, edamame, chopped lettuce, gorgonzola and Kalamata olives topped with a citrus-dijon vinaigrette; among others. Soups will be priced between $5 and $6 along with small plates, priced between $4 and $6, including: goat cheese and tomato flatbread; hummus with extra-virgin olive oil and grilled herb flatbread; and meatballs with marinara, among others.
Between Bread sandwich selections are priced at $10 and served with a choice of house-made potato chips or coleslaw. Varieties include: a steak and watercress sandwich featuring herb-marinated steak grilled medium-rare, topped with organic watercress, horseradish aioli and sliced tomato on multigrain or plan ciabatta bread; a grilled chicken and hummus wrap loaded with roasted red peppers, Kalamata olives, romaine and extra-virgin olive oil in lavash; and mini Kobe beef hamburgers topped with chipotle aioli and gorgonzola or cheddar cheese; among others.
Table 89 offers entrées priced between $11 and $12 including: shrimp and curry tofu bowl prepared in a wok with bell peppers, onion, cabbage, mushroom, bean sprouts, carrots and soft noodles in a Thai yellow curry sauce; and herb-marinated sliced steak grilled medium-rare and served with warm beluga lentils with sherry vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil; among others. A selection of “woodfired” pizzas inspired by Sammy’s will be available such as prosciutto pear, margherita, meatball and bell pepper and New York style.
Desserts include salted caramel pudding, a Callebaut double-chocolate brownie, a variety of cakes and assorted daily warm cookies. A children’s menu offers guests aged 10 and under a variety of choices such as pizzas, sliders and vegetables. Parents and other diners aged 21 and older may select from a variety of red and white wines by the glass or carafe and beer by the pint or pitcher.
Table 89 is designed to embrace the abundant natural light of Las Vegas with oversized windows and an open layout. An array of tables and booths are spread throughout a winding room with touches of a ‘natural’ theme including mimicked grass floorboards, plant artwork, wooden tables and a sleek tile floor. With more than 160 seats throughout the restaurant, Table 89 can comfortably seat groups. Outdoor dining is available on a spacious patio surrounded by palm trees and lush landscaping, with oversized umbrellas on each table.
Ladeki operates 19 Sammy’s locations throughout Las Vegas, Southern California and Sacramento along with Roppongi Restaurant & Sushi Bar in San Diego. Ladeki was named “Restaurateur of the Year’ by the San Diego chapter of the California Restaurant Association (CRA) in 2014.
