my thoughts....

....are that a long table with the grain running perpendicular to the long length will experience dimension changes that could cause drawer fit problems and challenges for attaching to frame beneath. On the other hand if the corner is made with opposing grain then this joint will be stressed by humidity changes. So, I would assemble a square corner piece from glued up lumber of orientation same as the top and sides, then shape it.
