By Blake miller When dining, what’s the best seat in the house? It’s the chef’s table, where you get an insider’s look at the kitchen while sometimes even chatting up the chef. These special tables are serving up a singular experience at some of the country’s top restaurants. ★ Wine & Dine Aria Tuscan Grill & Champagne Lounge The scene: There aren’t any bad seats at this Queen City hot spot, which boasts street-level views of the bustling downtown. But there is a best seat. At this eight-person chef’s table situated between the main dining room and the organized chaos of the kitchen, diners can order off the menu or opt for a personalized tasting menu, both consisting of fresh, seasonal ingredients. The food: Simple, authentic Italian dishes such as the standout house-made potato gnocchi served with prosciutto di Parma, pear, gorgonzola, and truffle oil are given modern twists. The tiramisu and Aria’s own gelatos make dessert a must. About $50 per person for a four- or five-course tasting menu.
