I've added

layerControlLayerInfos: { menu: [{ label: 'Query Layer...', iconClass: 'fa fa-search fa-fw', topic: 'queryLayer' }, { label: 'Open Attribute Table', topic: 'openTable', iconClass: 'fa fa-table fa-fw' }] },

What are the additional steps need to launch a attribute table from a sublayer menu?

How do I subscribe other widgets to the topic defined above?

The attributes table widget doesn't listen for this topic out of the box. It needs an 'invisible' widget to listen for the topic layerControl/openTable which builds its table parameters that will define its fields, and other settings and open the table with attributesContainer/addTable.

widgets: {
    attributesTableMenu: {
        type: 'invisible',
        path: 'dijit/_WidgetBase',
        id: 'attributesTableMenu',
        options: {
            startup: function(){
                topic.subscribe('layerControl/openTable', function(layer){
                    topic.publish('attributesContainer/addTable', {
                        title: layer.subLayer.name,
                        topicID: layer.layer.id + layer.subLayer.id,
                        queryOptions: {
                            queryParameters: {
                                url: layer.layer.url + '/' + layer.subLayer.id,    
                                where: '1=1'
                    //other table options
