From Lisa Day's Local Review - March 2009

Fodder for the Foodie: Last week I drove up to Waterville to check on a listing.  While I was there I decided to stop in to the Checkered Table Cloth for lunch.  What a treat!  This cute little restaurant is owned by Teresa Rudd, who started her culinary career with Steve Gordon of "Steven's" restaurant fame in the 80's.  Homemade soups, salads, funky sandwiches for lunch in this tiny little spot.  In the summer, Teresa opens her back courtyard for casual,  outdoor dining. Check her out at 111 S Chelan Street in Waterville. Call first for hours: (509) 745-8323.
