If I could choreograph every Sunday, it would look something like this:
1) Firing up the Ducati for a ride.
2) Hanging out with good friends.
3) Hitting up a new-to-me restaurant and being wowed.
And this is exactly what happened last Sunday. The weather was PERFECT, near 80 with a few clouds, and Litchfield County was begging to be explored.
We met our friends Mimi and Jeff at Community Table in Washington, CT for what I suspect will be the first of many meals. If you’ve never heard of Community Table, I suspect that will change soon and I hope to have something to do with that.
The space is rustic and modern with exquisite attention paid to every detail and finish. The muted white and gray exterior studded with modern touches, such as this pair of leather chairs, foreshadowed the food and space within.
Clean flavors and elegant pairings ruled our brunch and I was already scheming on when to return before I could finish the last bite of my Scandinavian breakfast plate paired with a pot of french press.
Prying ourselves away from Community Table, we hopped, skipped and jumped around the familiar territory of Litchfield County before collapsing at home several hours and dozens of miles later. A perfect Sunday we will spend the rest of the summer living up to.
