This is a very "in" place, but it was kind of lost on me. Coming in without a reservation in the evening, I was seated in the bar area. It was very noisy. The service was great, but the food was too ample and too...More

The outdoor/open air venue is a nice change from traditional restaurant settings. Enjoy a cocktail at the bar while you wait to be seated. The menu has a great selection of meals that should satisfy just about anyone's appetite.

We were amazed by the food. The starter roll was so light and tasty. The pumpkin soup was lovely, with an unusual sweetness. I had the short rib in bone, which was as tender and tasty as one could imagine. My wife had the chicken,...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.
