Picture this: a sweltering hot Central Valley summer day. You venture out and escape to the serene nature found along the banks of the San Joaquin River. You dine on sumptuous cuisine that only The Painted Table’s artistry can offer. But you’re not just sitting on shore—You are seated at a long, elegantly set table in the river! With your feet immersed in the cool currents, you dine on a unique five-course meal designed just for the occasion.
This isn’t a dream. Here at the Painted Table, we transform extraordinary culinary adventures into reality. We painted outside the lines with event planning that visited the realm of the unexpected for our “Dinner in the Water,” in collaboration with Fresno’s Underground Supper Series, for our June 10th event.
Experimental menus paired with exquisite cocktails are the signature of Underground Suppers. From delicate appetizers, that included strawberry and ricotta crostata and fried smelt served with a fine ginger-seasoned dipping sauce, to a refreshingly spicy cucumber and coconut salad, our 40 guests were poised for the main entrée: braised short ribs brushed with fig and apricot glaze. The dessert teased tongues with a bounty of flavors and textures: our guests delighted in velvety lime curd served with pickled green apple 3 ways, sesame crumble, candied ginger, and sorrel.
Only the finest team of event pros can produce such a successful escape. The Modernist astutely created a specially crafted cocktail to pair with our menu. Beautiful flowers by Botanique Floral Artistry adorned our long table covered with crisp linens from The Linen Shoppe. Our guests sat under hanging golden lights strung by Light Up The Walls, and DC Photography Studios captured the entire event.
This kind of fantastical culinary getaway is what we’re known for at The Painted Table. Impeccable event planning and execution is in our wheelhouse. What’s your vision for your upcoming event? From an intimate dinner party to a big blowout celebration, we’re here to make your vision come to life. Contact our in-house event design team at (559) 443-7199.

Bio shared from Amy Jaye at Fresno's Underground Suppers:
I’m a Midwestern gal originally from the Windy City who grew up in a large family filled with exemplary hostesses. Always wanting to be in the thick of things, at the age of five I learned to play tambourine on “Jeremiah was a Bullfrog” for the band that performed at every family wedding. It was a sure gig at least three times a summer and cemented my love for events that bring people together.
I’ve spent more than twenty years planning festivals, conventions, and meetings in the entertainment, software, and hospitality industries, all the while helping friends and family organize the special moments of their lives. I’ve always loved to experience things in new and clever ways, so when it was time to carve my own path in the events industry, I chose to produce events that create community through food and travel experiences. The result is Fresno’s Underground Suppers and Bird and Stone Collective.
You might call me a traditionalist with a twist; I would say I am the original Mini Cooper updated with the new technology of today. Like a traveler from a bygone era, I dress up when I get on an airplane and check my suitcase, rather than put everything in the overhead bin. But my carry-on is filled with the latest gadgets to keep me busy and a pair of comfy socks so I can ditch my shoes. Who takes tea with cream (not milk) and espresso black, but also loves trying new flavors of kombucha and unusual craft cocktails? That’s me. And even though I love fancy food like caviar and oysters for a special occasion, there is nothing as tasty as Chicago deep dish pizza. Well, maybe cupcakes. Or a hot dog eaten in the bleachers at Wrigley Field.
