MyTable is the new Venice food sensation  bringing delicious, healthy meals to your doorstep. How do we know? Because we tried their food and it’s simply delish! See the photo above of the Fiesta Salmon by Chef Lisa – it’s  a fresh cut of salmon, so good we bit into it before photographing it on First Fridays when we ordered it while we were at The Other Room. How cool is that – they delivered it there to us!

The salmon was spicy but not overwhelming with an ample serving of salad withfresh mixed leafy greens, flower petals, sweet potatoes (yum), tomatoes and balsamic dressing in a separate container. Nice packaging that kept the food intact and well presented.
