Welcome to the source — for great food, and the latest news on what we’re dishing up at the Table.
First, there is no one here named Nora. Nora was founder Kathy Watson’s mother, Nora Fruh, who died in 2007, and this restaurant is in part a tribute to her. It’s also a tribute to you, and your desire for food with a difference. Fresh, local ingredients. Big, bold flavors. Beautiful to look at. A wonder to taste. A value to the pocketbook. A place to remember, and return.
Not to mention, the Gorge’s only Gorge-only wine list. Oregon Wine Press just this month (September 2010) recognized us as one of 40 “stellar cellar” wine lists of note in the state. We believe there is such an excellent selection of wines available from the wineries in the Columbia River Gorge, there’s no sustainable reason to buy imports from South America, Australia or even California.
We buy our fruits, vegetables and meats from local farmers and ranchers whenever we can. Most of our beef, lamb and pork comes from Mountain Shadow Natural Meats in Dufur, just around the back side of Mount Hood. The meat is fresh, and raised without added antibiotics and hormones, and fed all vegetable feed, and very little grain.
