Synopsis:
Within the walls of the trendiest Chicago restaurants and behind the closed doors of private dinner parties, OPEN TABLES explores true love, love lost and the importance of a good main course.

 Sam and Kate host a group of friends for dinner in hopes that sparks will fly between Kate’s younger sister Cassie and their friend Ryan. Joining them at the table is Jon and Dana, a couple with a seemingly perfect relationship. 

Told in flashbacks but always returning to the warm glow of the dinner table, OPEN TABLES stars talent from Chicago theater and improv stages and was filmed on location in some of the top restaurants in Chicago, IL (Longman & Eagle, Publican) and Paris, France (Bistrot Paul Bert, Au Bon Accueil).
