Blue Table


I've totally redeemed myself!!! Not only is today's entry chock full of pix, I have not one, but two SpEcIaL GuEsTs!!! First, introductions...


Everyone, this is cZimm. We work together. And eat together.


And this is Guy. We also work together. And eat together.

Today's lunch was at Blue Table thanks to cZimm's suggestion. And what a suggestion it was. This was just the all-natural, detox-from-deep-fryness my pores were begging for. BT has two locations, one in Agoura and one in Calabasas (which happens to be right next to a certain famous family's clothing store). It's a small, shabby chic kind of place with some wooden tables inside and bistro tables outside. They also sell cutesy kitchen items like teas, candies, and jams.

I ordered the Roasted Turkey Breast Sandwich which consisted of turkey, brie, arugula, roasted red peppers, and sun-dried tomato aioli all on ciabatta bread. OMG, this sandwich was SO good. I was pleasantly surprised when it showed up at my table and wasn't a big solid slab of turkey breast. I hate that. If I wanted a big fat chuck of turkey, I would have bought myself a Butterball. Instead, this was nice, thin slices of turkey, gooey bites of brie and just the right amount of aioli to soften up the ciabatta. I didn't really touch my salad because that's not how I roll. But if I had, I'm sure it would have been nice. I think my meal and strawberry lemonade came out to somewhere around $11.


cZimm's description of her sandwich:
" I got the Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich with arugula, red peppers, and garlic aioli. It was delish! It was accompanied by a small salad. I think I ate a few leaves of my salad, but was much more interested in inhaling my sandwich. I had a blood orange sparkling soda, which the guy at the counter pointed out, "Oh, nice pairing." So I was excited to take a bite of my yummy sandwich and wash it down with my nicely-paired soda. I definitely would order this again, but I want to sample the rest of the sandwiches there first. Great place and good fun with friends!"


Guy ordered the Steak Sandwich, consisting of steak, sauteed mushrooms, and chimichurri sauce on a baguette. This is what Guy has to say about it:
"At first, I thought it was too small. But it actually filled me up. The steak was better than most and the chimichurri was awesome."

Overall, Blue Table was a smash hit and gets a whopping 5 out of 5 chins! Good work, BT. I forgot to mention, it's located right next to the Canyon Club so it's totally convenient for some totally cliche* entertainment .

And if you're looking for the perfect gift for your Italian friends, look no further...




*I love them with all my heart.
