Table 42's Best Footage of 2015

Table 42” is a Foodable Network show that brings viewers inside high-end restaurants around the country that are redefining their respective markets and beyond. Each chef, each dish, and each venue has a story to tell unlike the last. Giving our audience a front-row seat into the goings on of culinary creation, “Table 42,” hosted by Foodable Founder/CEO and Executive Producer Paul Barron, is filled with valuable knowledge for chefs and operators, with top-line executive chefs giving us access into their kitchens.

In this 2015 compilation of “Table 42” footage, brought to you by the Foodable WebTV Network, we’re bringing you back into some of the best establishments we had the pleasure of filming at this year — from Peasant in New York City, an Old World, Tuscan-style restaurant helmed by Chef DeCarlo (fun fact: it’s Marc Forgione’s favorite restaurant to eat at when he’s not working), to Counter 3. Five. VII in Austin, a restaurant built on a non-traditional, no-waitstaff model. Watch the full episode to learn more.

[VIDEO] Step Inside Little Italy's Peasant

Chef Frank DeCarlo isn’t your typical restaurant owner/chef. You can regularly find him on the line, helping prep the food. And it’s little quirks like this that make Foodable Top 25 restaurant Peasant — found in New York’s Little Italy neighborhood — about as unpretentious as it gets.

The expansive dinner menu includes few ingredients per dish with flavors standing out on their own. Dishes include gnocchi con funghi (with brown butter, sage and mushrooms), spiedini alla pollastra (baby hen, herb stuffing, turnip puree), and porchetta arrosto (suckling pig, fingerling potatoes), and the overall vibe of its cuisine can be described as old-world cooking with a modern-day twist.

Step inside the kitchen, where pigs are a’roasting atop an open wood-fire flame, and get a peek at all Peasant and Chef Frank have to offer.

Nestled in the heart of New York City’s Little Italy neighborhood is Peasant, a Foodable Top 25 favorite, run by Chef Frank DeCarlo. Unlike many restaurant Executive Chef/Owners, Chef DeCarlo actually cooks in the line, helping with prep. On this episode of Table 42, brought to you by the Foodable Network, we get in the kitchen with Chef DeCarlo, who typically aims for concise, 3-ingredient dishes. Watch the full episode to explore all that Peasant has to offer (including its incredible open kitchen with brick wood-burning stove).
