After hearing about the Long Table Series for the longest time, I've always wanted to go. I remember reading about this other dining experience at a long table that was much more expensive, so this seemed like a reasonable deal for $18. Actually, before that it was only $16 a few months ago! Kem and I had originally planned to go, but krispymilk also tagged along after our trip to Phnom Penh!
What's so special about Irish Heather is that they feature their "Long Table Series", which is "an intimate gathering of friends, old and new, along our 40 foot communal table.... like coming home to 'Sunday Dinner'". LTS runs only on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays and everyone eats the same dish which varies daily and is listed on their blog. Dinner started at 7pm and a bell was promptly rang to invite us to the long table next door at the Salty Tongue, which is also owned by the Heather Hospitality Group.

I wasn't actually expecting food that was entirely that amazing, since the main selling point of this was to experience the long table and dining with strangers. Unfortunately, the people around us came in their own little pairs or groups and just kept to themselves. That was a bit unexciting. I really do want to give it another try, since it seems like the experience varies with the different crowds that come.
