At Le Pain Quotidien, we believe that community is what nurtures, inspires and feeds the soul. Our first communal table on Rue Dansaert in Brussels was built from wood salvaged from the floors of retired Belgian trains. Those simple planks became a tradition. Today, this same rough, reclaimed wood continues to bring a rustic comfort to our stores, and the communal tables have become our centrepiece.

Long enough for all to fit and narrow enough for all to talk, our tables are where friends reconnect and new friendships are forged over the shared appreciation of delicious food and good company.

This Autumn, on Thursday 6th October 2016, we invite you to join us at our communal table for special table talks with Historian of Food and Eating, Rachel Rich as we explore the history of communal dining.  This will be followed by a delicious Autumn feast, showcasing the finest of our seasonal, organic menu.

Tickets cost €40 per person and include the table talk, a delicious three course meal, drinks and a jar of our signature spread to take home.

In a space where colour comes to life, music mingles with the melody of conversation and fresh-baked smells stoke the imagination, there will always be a place for you at our table.

Please reserve your seat by contacting the restaurant: kildare@lepainquotidien.ie.
