The food is excellent and the waiter was very good. However, as it usually happens when women want to eat alone in a restaurant, we are systematically placed in poorly located tables. I was seated in a table by the bar and near to the...More

This was a wonderful meal and experience! Our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and very enthusiastic about describing each item we asked about. After tasting the dishes, we understood why... really delicious! Great atmosphere, too.

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.
