Pull up a chair at Blue Table Kitchen and you just might leave with a new friendship. Rocket Bakery owners Julia and Jeff Postlewait and their friends Karen and Wayne Johnson have opened a new place to dine behind the Rocket Bakery in Millwood. Dinners range from five-course meals paired with wines to simple comfort fare, but the point is to bring people together around the table. In Wednesday’s Food section we’ll also have details on Method Juice Café, the new EJ’s Garden Bistro and why the West Wing of the White House Grill closed.
Also, don’t miss the debut of Dining with Dave and Dan, a monthly column on eating out by longtime restaurateur Dan Coyle and Spokesman-Review writer Dave Trimmer.
