Food and atmosphere are still enjoyable ... Loved the tuna crudi and brussel sprouts with bacon. But part of the service was a real negative. The waiter refused to take our order for some starters separate from the full menu of everyone at the table,...More

We were knocked out by the whole experience, the meal was out of this world, helped by friendly, knowledgeable staff and the eclectic atmosphere.

Had a business dinner with a friend/colleague here and went all out with an 11-mini course dinner. Long story short: Excellent food. We spent about $150 pp which is pretty steep, but worth it! A very high culinary level, close to a 1 Michelin-star in...More

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.

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.
