About Ten Tables

ten tables neighborhood

We’re A True Neighborhood Restaurant

At Ten Tables, we take pride in being a true neighborhood restaurant that supports our local partners and provides a welcoming, comfortable environment, no matter where we open our doors.

Of all the places we’ve dined over the years, both around Boston and abroad, the homey places that feel like a dinner party are the ones that remain most memorable. With that as our guide, our lights are dimmed as an invitation for you to relax by candlelight, and to sit back and enjoy our attentive but unobtrusive service.

We Cook Locally Grown Food

We shape our seasonal menus around local ingredients grown by farmers we have direct relationships with. Over the last ten years we have been the grateful recipients of many freshly harvested delights. Farmers fresh from the field and fisherman straight off the boat are a common sight in our restaurants. This direct relationship allows us to work with only the finest local, sustainable, and organic ingredients possible.

Same goes with our drinks. We create all of the ingredients that we mix with spirits. Our wine list constantly evolves, giving us the opportunity to share the creations of small, family vineyards that practice organic or biodynamic winemaking. Similarly, we select brewers whose commitment to their craft creates beers to complement nearly any meal we serve.

We’re Environmentally Friendly

We also strive to minimize our negative neighborhood and environmental impact. Instead of bringing another loud, dirty, polluting delivery truck to our sites, our produce and dairy deliveries arrive daily via Metro Pedal Power, a bike delivery service serving Boston and Cambridge neighborhoods. We’re doing our part to help our neighbors breathe a little more easily.

Krista Kranyak, Founder & Proprietor

When I was just 12 years old, I worked at a local farm near my hometown in Connecticut. It was here that I first learned the process of growing food, picking food, and what it means (and what it takes!) to eat from ground-to-plate. I worked there on the farm until taking my first restaurant job at 15.

Starting with these early experiences and throughout the career I have created, I have believed strongly in the merits of supporting local, organic farms and the philosophy of ground-to-plate as the best way to eat. Simultaneously, my love for travel has taken me around the world, and small European restaurants in particular have inspired me. I brought those many fine meals experiences back home stateside with the dream of replicating them here in the Boston area.

In 2002, I founded Ten Tables and opened my first location in the Jamaica Plain (“JP”) neighborhood of Boston. I was the only waitress for those initial ten tables, with a vision to create a space where every aspect of the dining experience had been carefully considered with passion and care. I opened a slightly larger second location just outside of Harvard Square in Cambridge in February of 2009, and on New Year’s Eve 2009 I opened my third venture in the space directly adjacent to the original Ten Tables JP: a homey but stylish bar. The bar space at Ten Tables JP serves our dining room cuisine and also offers its own delicious bar menu focused on our homemade charcuterie, pastas, and cheeses.

Over the summer of 2010 I jumped at the opportunity to acquire and renovate space in a Victorian home on the tip of Cape Cod, creating Ten Tables Provincetown. Then, in 2012, I opened a burger bar in JP, 2 doors down from my original Ten Tables location, called Grassfed.

I am ecstatic that Ten Tables has become so loved, and I am deeply grateful for the national attention we have received in Food and Wine, GQ, and on the Rachel Ray show, as well as plenty of local accolades that include being a three-time “Best of Boston” winner in Boston Magazine.

My goal from the beginning was to create and sustain authentic “neighborhood spots” with a relentless focus on local and organic foods combined with the highest level of service. Thank you for supporting my Ten Tables ventures, and for those of you with whom we’ve not yet had the opportunity to dine, I extend a personal welcome to join us soon in one of our spaces in JP, Cambridge, or Provincetown.

Parking + Directions

Please take a look at the Parking Spaces Map we’ve made to get a better idea of where you can park. Meanwhile consider these parking tips:

  1. Ten Tables patrons may park in one of the first four spaces in the lot — look for the TT sign at the end of the space. If these spaces are full please come inside and speak to the host about additional spaces nearby.
  2. Please don’t park anywhere else in the Craigie Circle lot — you will be towed.
  3. Continue to the end of Craigie Street, where it runs into Brattle Street and park on Brattle Street in front of the white Armenian Church. There is unrestricted parking here for about 15-20 cars. Also, you can drive past the Church on Brattle Street going toward Harvard Square. There are additional spaces on the left side of Brattle Street between Mercer Cicle and Willard St.
  4. Park in the loading zone alongside the brick schoolhouse on Parker St., adjacent to the intersection with Buckingham St. (which is off of Craigie St.) There is unrestricted parking here for 10-15 cars.

Team

Benjamin Lacy

Executive Chef

Executive Chef Benjamin Lacy is a fully engaged culinarian who’s diverse cooking talents and passion for food is what inspires the menu and culture at Ten Tables in Cambridge. He is intensely involved in the preparation, presentation and flavor array of all of his dishes. Among his specialties are varied selections of charcuteries, smoked meats, pastas and braises. His favorite meals to prepare and enjoy are hearty comfort foods like stews, cassoulets, and roasts.

Lacy’s curiosity of food started at the age of four. Being the first to arise in his household, he started experimenting in the kitchen and quickly learned how to make breakfast for himself. His Chinese mother and Irish American father exposed Ben to a wide variety of both conflicting and complementary flavors and cultures. A large multi-cultural extended family and an always-filled kitchen have cultivated in Ben a love of eclectic cooking.

He pursued this culinary interest part-time while attending Providence College, working as a summer grill cook at the Hopkinton Country Club where, his early dalliance with life as a chef took root. While completing his economics degree, Chef Ben maintained an on-campus cooking and bakery position. At the same time, he rose through the ranks at the Country Club during the summers and weekends. When he emerged as a magna cum laude PC graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree, he had acquired valuable hands-on training in both cooking and baking, making him an attractive addition to Sel de la Terre at the Natick Collection.

Lacy took a job at Sel de la Terre in Natick where he was able to nurture his passion for food under the watchful eyes of Chef Frank McClelland, Chef Geoff Gardner and Chef Daniel Bojorquez. Lacy worked his way up from line cook to sous chef before leaving in 2010 to pursue an opportunity with the Aquitaine Group at Union Bar and Grille as Executive Sous Chef.

Lacy joined the team at Tastings Wine Bar and Bistro in 2011 where he assumed the position of Executive Chef.   At Tastings, Lacy focused exclusively on providing the best farm fresh ingredients to his guests.  He developed and nurtured relationships with local farmers and community organizations.  He also worked with the local YMCA to cultivate their Healthy Futures program.

This passion continues in the kitchen at Ten Tables where Lacy insists on extending the boundaries of local cuisine.These collective experiences have fueled his unending and colorful imagination in the kitchen.  Lacy promotes the use of locally grown farm fresh ingredients to deliver a dining experience reflecting the fresh flavors of New England. He participates in Massachusetts and Rhode Island sustainable food co-ops and locally sources the restaurant’s organic produce, eggs and poultry.

For Chef Lacy, kitchen life is learning about good food, preparing it in a way that celebrates its truest flavors and sharing it with his guests.
