The evolution of La Table on Post Oak continues with the arrival of James Friedberg, formally of Le Cirque and Gilt in New York. He’s taken the reins as executive chef at Uptown’s La Table, debuting new menus for lunch, dinner and brunch.


Downstairs, at the relaxed Marché, new offerings include roasted veggie cassolette with poached egg and halibut accompanied with rice pilaf, while the more formal Château upstairs boasts tableside-prepared classics like the dover sole meuniére, flown in fresh from France daily and fileted in the dining room.

Glimpse the new iteration this weekend at brunch with Santa (mimosas included!), Saturday and Sunday from 11am-3pm. Or make a reservation for New Year’s Eve, when Friedberg will be cooking up decadent year-end specialties, like ricotta dumplings filled with black truffle, and the Baba Au Rhum for dessert: rum-soaked cake with pastry cream and seasonal fruit.
