Scoring a reservation at tiny Talula’s Table is nearly impossible. But why wait a year to get a taste of paradise?
Up your chances tomorrow at Stephen Starr and Aimee Olexy’s new sister venture, Talula’s Garden, which has dozens more seats (though reservations will be equally coveted). Chef Michael Santoro mans the kitchen, carefully assembling roasted morels with potato gnocchi, oxtail-stuffed artichokes, and other seasonal dishes made from ingredients grown in flower boxes and on a verdant wall.
A twelve-course chef’s tasting menu is in the works, but you can spring right into action with fresh herb-infused libations (think vanilla grass, basil, and mint).
Salvaged materials, like ceiling planks crafted from well-worn Vlasic pickle barrels, mimic the rustic feel of the Kennett Square location. But for a true heaven-on-earth experience, opt for a spot on the leafy patio.
Consider it your own private Eden.
