The service was knowledgeable and professional, the menu original and fresh, the overall experience a plus. The cheese tastings offered as starters make small plate options that follow a welcome option. The setting is warm and inviting.

I waited 2 months for my reservation and the dinner was no big deal, a lot of hype and over priced, never ever need to go back, nothing impressed us.

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.
