Description: 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.

“As amazing as Talula's Table - what a night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

We've been lucky to have gotten reservations at Talula's Table in Kennett Square four or five times so I was particularly thrilled when my wife told me she had gotten reservations at Aimee's new restaurant before all the publicity made it a hot destination. We were absolutely blown away by the evening. The interior decor keeps a slightly rustic ambience and there is a lovely garden built into the alleyway next to the restaurant proper with outdoor seating. The food was as perfect of a dinner as we had experienced at Talula's Table, with TONS of flavors in each dish, yet there was a simplicity where you didn't have to "search" for the duck or lamb or whatever the main ingredient was. Their wine list was a bit shorter than expected for a property in the Steven Starr group, but everything was perfectly suited for cuisine (not a lot of big names on the list, but that meant that the prices were VERY reasonable). Also, there was a great list of micro-breweries available (not a Budweiser or Coors Lite to be seen!). The bottom line is that I really don't want to recommend this restaurant to you because that just means that it'll be harder for me to get a reservation! <GRIN>

Aimee - you've done a masterful job!

“OMG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2011

From the moment we walked in to the end it was a 10 all around. The chef is so creative and very accommodating. Two of the diners were Gluten and nothing was a problem. The wine list is superb. Entrees were outstanding and let's not forget the desert. I could go on and on. The only problem is that now we all want to dine here and it's not easy getting a reservation. Well that's a good thing for Tulula's.
Keep doing what you are doing!
