At The Table, a fine dining establishment in Wayne, is relocating to a larger location next month. The new space at 118 W. Lancaster Ave. has seating for 100 people and allows the restaurant to offer cocktails and beers for the first time. Above, At The Table chefs and owners Tara Buzan-Hardy and Alex Hardy.

At The Table BYOB in Wayne is moving into a larger location down the road, dropping the "BYOB" from its name, and adopting a new drinks menu.

The Main Line fine dining restaurant, run by husband-and-wife chefs Alex and Tara Buzan-Hardy, will cease operations at its Louella Court space after Saturday. Its new location at 118 W. Lancaster Ave. opens Tuesday, Sept. 12.

At The Table's new space can accommodate 100 guests – a 400% increase over its current 24-capacity. The space includes indoor tables, an oyster bar and an outdoor garden patio. The new kitchen is four times larger and features a chef's window that gives guests views of the kitchen.

"This new restaurant will give us the ability to go above and beyond," Hardy said in a news release. "You're limited by your restaurant, by what your kitchen can do. Our new kitchen has been designed to allow us to show our stuff: what we've learned, what we know, and what we've attempted in the past but could not execute on due to our old location's limitations."

With modern, oceanic design elements, the interior of the space is inspired by the couple's visits to Michelin Star-level restaurants and upscale coastal eateries.

At The Table will continue offering its six-course tasting menu of modern French flavors. It is updated every two weeks. The first menu at the new location will include wild mushroom toast, squid ink pasta with crab, pan-seared scallops, foie gras, A5 myazaki wagyu and lavender crème brûlée. 

Though At The Table is dropping "BYOB" from its name, guests still can bring their own drinks. But the restaurant will offer cocktails and craft beer for the first time because Hatfield-based Imprint Beer Co. is lending the At The Table its brewery license. 

At its launch, the rotating beverage menu will feature four varieties of craft beer and six cocktails, including "Alex's Favorite G and T" and "Tiramisu Espresso Martini."

At The Table's new hours are 5-10 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Reservations can be made online
