The Raw Table
A monthly intimate gathering hosted by Eden & June
The Raw Table seeks to usher us back to our roots — back to the simple and uncomplicated gift of gathering around the table with like-minded people for an intimate dining experience where we can all be real and raw as can be. Let’s keep it at that. Simple and easy.
Our humble mission is to create a space for opportunity to have actual conversations and harbor real connections. We do this simply by getting together rad human beings who are themselves thinkers, makers, designers, creatives, entrepreneurs, change-makers, game-changers, or really just simple persons with big hearts and undeniable passion for life.
The Raw Table is a space for us to purposefully take one night a month to slow down, eat around the table, share stories and inspiration, learn from each other and sink deep into the present with the ones we deeply connect with.
Some questions & easy answers
Funny we get this question a lot but that’s a big nope for you! We do hope to someday have our own space to hold our intimate gatherings monthly but until then we will be setting up The Raw Table at hand-picked restaurants around Metro Manila.
Can I join every single gathering?
We appreciate the love but we realized we’d miss out on the company of all the many more wishing to get a chance to sit around The Raw Table if we allow you to join every single one. As a simple guideline, we will be giving you an interval of two gatherings before you can join another. Sounds like a good deal?
My friends and I can fill an entire table! Can you reserve one night solely for us?
If that make you happy, we don’t see why not. Truth be told though, you and your friends would miss out on the very purpose of The Raw Table. That and meeting strangers-turned-friends, hearing unfamiliar stories and sentiments, all the more so fostering friendships that can grow into collaborations in the future. Your call.
Once a month is so sad, can you please host a gathering weekly?
Trust us when we say we want to get there right away, and we are working very hard to! For now, once a month is the slow but sure way to go. This space and time allows us to get the necessary feedback we need and think through all the ways we can improve, adjust, and make The Raw Table experience more worthwhile and encouraging for our guests.
Can we tell you a bit of a secret though? While a lot of work is being done behind the scenes, we are hoping that we can host two gatherings per month starting June. We’ll make sure to update you!
So how does this work? Do I have to pay for anything?
If we want to continue setting up beautiful gatherings that are tastefully curated and high touch, why of course! Our seat fees are highly dependent on our arrangements with our collaborators and partners but we do our best to keep them at a minimum. It’s always win-win-win at The Raw Table though, and as guests, trust us when we say you will always be going home with a full belly, new friends, and a bigger heart.
