This is kind of a kludge and you'll have to fiddle with it, but it will work.
Create a new para format based on your body tag -- "Foo." In the Para Designer, Basic tab for Foo, assuming it's a 12 pt font with 2 pt leading, set your Space Below to -28 pt (2x font+leading size). I set line spacing to Fixed too, just to keep things simple. Hit Enter a few times so you have three Body paras. Then set the middle tag to Foo. Insert the table, so that the anchor is the only content in Foo. (Note that the table is going to be floating above the frame containing the tag, so the anchor point disappears.) Select the table and in your Table Designer, Basic tab for the table style, set Space Above to -28 pt (font size + leading). That should get your started. Time to twiddle. I had to adjust the Space Below in Foo a point at a time to make it precise, and ended up with a -26 pt. Drawing a line across the page as a reference to which to align the cell rules helps.
