Talula's Garden Restaurant Review

: With an indoor/outdoor space right on Washington Square, Talula’s Garden invites lingering. An urban extension of Aimee Olexy’s Kennett Square establishment, Talula’s Table, in partnership with Starr Restaurants, this venture delivers garden-to-plate dishes, seasonal tastes that might include a carrot soup with spicy cucumber salad, radish "pickles," mint and yogurt, or crispy Pennsylvania lamb shoulder confit with polenta, wilted Treviso, feta and oregano-rosemary-Zinfandel vinaigrette. Although chefs have come and gone, current executive chef Sean McPaul, who hails from South Philly, brings impressive skill to the table, having honed his craft at left coast institutions including Farallon and Jardinière. Save plenty of room for cheese --- there's an entire farmhouse table devoted to artisanal selections with fun groupings like "Not Your Granny's - Six New Takes on Tradition" featuring Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery's "Cremont," among others. The farm-to-bar cocktails and wine list are courtesy of consultant Dan Westiner. We like the Portuguese rosé. And for dessert, do try the "little" sweet ricotta donuts.
