Chef's Table offered a full five to six course dinner, the serving of which can last for three to four hours. Since this is a by appointment only restaurant, clients would have to book their tables at least 2 weeks in advance.
The dinner menu, says Lim, would depend on what was in season and on what was available in the market. Customers could still call ahead, and ask for a customized menu. Lim recalls a restaurant patron who requested a tapa theme for his dinner, everything from the appetizer to the dessert, says Lim, who also hosts the Asian Food Channel AFC show "tablescapes" (In the vernacular, tapa refers to thin slices of beef.)
Filipinos love good food, as seen in the fact many restaurants still do brisks business even during a crisis. Filipinos also love personalized services. Using these two Filipino traits, celebrity chef Bruce Lim established his by appointment-only restaurant. Filipino-American Bruce Lim, whose career as a TV chef began in 2007 with the one-time morning magazine show "Magandang Umaga Pilipinas" over the network ABS-CBN. To accommodate the taping of his TV segments. Lim had a kitchen studio constructed on the top of their family's furniture factory in Makati City. When the studio was not being used for the tapings, he would rent it out.
In February 2009, however he embarked on an alternative use for the kitchen-studio with the launching of the space as a by appointment only restaurant, aptly named Chef's Table Private Dining.
