Behind the wrought iron gate, past the herbaceous patio and through the atrium is Talula's Garden, the warm and elegant Washington Square eatery from Aimee Olexy and Starr Restaurants. The modern menu, prepared with carefully-sourced ingredients and a light European touch, changes with the seasons. The artful cuisine, hospitable staff, sustainable spirits, and a focus on cheese make the dining experience here incredibly memorable.

I find the service exceptional. But the wine selection disappointed me, since my fav Pinot from oregon had left the menu. I am lactose intolerant, and couldn't have the bread. More lactose free desserts would be appreciated.
