I am attempting to find establishments that have a table in their kitchens. I have a teenager who is interested in the industry and I thought this would be fun to do together!

Dear Encouraging Mother,
The Chefs Table, as its called in the trade, is a luxury item of surpassing expense, and probably not what you have in mind. Not that theyre not awesome: The skybox at Daniel oversees the definitive traditional French kitchen in the city, and the even more exciting chefs room at Park Avenue Summer, though its view isnt as electrifying, is a soundproof bubble in the middle of the action where you can plug in your own iPod. But for learning how a kitchen works, wed send you down to Hearth on an off hour. The chefs counter looks over an exemplary kitchen, executing on a high level, and you dont have to pay a cent extra. And if your teenager really wants to start cooking, Marco Canora may hire him on the spot. So theres that too.
