The cheese plates are exceptional. Less impressed with seating. Seemed to be lots of open tables, but even at 6:00, we were seated next to a wall far in the back, and when a noisy table of four was seated right on top of us,...More

Even though the brunch isn’t a buffet(thank goodness) the selections from which to choose couldn’t have been any better. The pancake entree was difficult to finish and my wife’s omelet obviously had eggs from a huge chicken and the added ingredients were numerous and made...More

The plate presentation and combination of ingredients were the hallmark of our recent dinner. My appetizer selection was a delightful education in how a menu standard from my youth can evolve. Gone is the chicken liver with hard-boiled egg bits served from an ice cream...More

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.
