The Best Seat in the House at Nuba

Not all restaurant tables are created equal. Some shouldn’t even exist on account of their terrible positioning, while others are so superior in every way that they make the other tables in the dining room jealous. Scout keeps a running account of the very best ones here.

Though each one of the four locations of Lebanese eatery Nuba has great and varied options for seating, the most superior of them all is unquestionably Table #10 at their Yaletown address (508 Davie St.).

Situated on an elevated perch next to the front door, the cloistered table for two (or tight four) is set apart from the rest inside its very own arched enclosure with blue pool tile sides and floors, wood bench seating uniquely upholstered in digital camouflage (look closely, it’s a thing); and a mirror on the wall side so you never lose sight of the action even when you turn away from it. Its positioning also allows for great people watching.

While its construction certainly affords those who sit at it a modicum of privacy, it’s also something of an attention grabber. If you’re fortunate enough to snag Table #10 when you dine here, you will likely invite an envious glance or three. Take a closer look:
