Media Event Launch

Table 45 was officially introduced to its public on Thursday, March 29,after months of planning, building, and perfecting.
The Table 45 Media Event welcomed 200 guests to experience its unique World Cuisine, and become acquainted with the newly designed 6,000-square-foot restaurant and lounge of the InterContinental Hotel.

Upon arrival, guests were warmly welcomed by the host staff of Table 45 immediately setting the tone of both the evening and the restaurant itself ­ inviting, hip and elegant. Servers mingled throughout the crowd of guests as they presented an array samples both stunning in presentation and innovative in flavor such as shrimp with arugula parmesan and orange, grilled pork pinchitos with Peruvian pepper sauce,and Japanese beef salad. Guests also helped themselves to the Saigon crab and avocado wraps, seared Madras duck with vadouvan and home made naan bread from the tandoor oven. The beautifully decadent dessert table boasting banana crème bruleé, amaretto cheese cake dessert was rather impossible to resist.

Each of the restaurant's five zones is designed for different moods, from quiet and intimate to casual and high energy. There is no question the theme of the night favored the high energy, as guests explored and admired this highly anticipated addition to the Cleveland dining scene.
