Stone Table's History
In 2001, Matthew Sganga began Stone Table as a small part-time catering service located on the corner of Windsor and Church St. in downtown Monroe, NC.
In 2002, Matthew left the well-loved Santé Restaurant in Matthews where he was working as a chef de cuisine to cater full time.
It was under the training of Adam Reed of Santé that Matthew refined his love for fine food and quality ingredients.
Originally, Matthew operated Stone Table with his family and close friends, serving Wingate and Monroe,
and eventually catering throughout Union County.
In 2005, the Stone Table crew moved to a space in the Shops at Nottingham Plaza, and began serving lunch, as well as expanding their catering company.
That first day in August, the register was filled with an old cigar box of change, donated by Matthew's grandmother.
The refrigerator held enough food to last a day or two.
From that humble beginning to the present, Union County has shown up to eat at Stone Table. Matthew, his family, and friends still run the business.
Some of their pictures adorn one wall of the restaurant.
A little about the food...the Stone Table Way
When we prepare our chicken salad, we roast off one or two pans of hens at a time, until the skin is crispy and golden.
We then hand-pull the meat and mix it with a spiced mayonnaise, sliced green onions, fresh chopped cilantro, and serve it to you
on country white bread.
Our fruit is peeled and sliced into chunks by hand daily; corn is still in the husks before it is cut.
The tortilla chips that are brought out to each table are fried in small batches in a well-loved pressure cooker.
We use fresh butter, olive oil, stone-ground grits, and whole bean coffee.
It is our belief that to present you with a delicious meal, we must not cut any corners.
We call this the Stone Table Way.
At Stone Table, we take time to prepare your food the way that you would if you had all day to be in the kitchen.
