This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Here are three versions of the EA Bistro Dining Table redone to have a glass top. There are rose, aquamarine, and clear to choose from. The frame of each table is recolorable. The picture below shows the clear glass and the other two can be seen in the thumbnail pictures.

The tables each cost $5 and can be found in Buy/Surfaces/Dining Tables.

The tables have been tested in the base game with no patches and WA with all patches up to but not including the last one.

Thanks to Huge Lunatic for her footprint tutorial which allowed me to clone the EA three tile glass dining table and turn it into this functional one-tile dining table.

Thanks also for the help I received in the MTS Meshing forum...especially HL and Base

I hope you enjoy the tables.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is what happens every time I try to scoot a chair up to the table. Any idea what's causing this?

Same exact issue with the chairs - they always intersect the tables for some reason. Really hope they can be fixed, because they look wonderful.

I know this table's probably not supported by the creator anymore but I also have the same issue as Byphast's above. I think the Pets patch broke this table, seeing as this was only tested up to the World Adventures patch
