Indoor and outdoor seating, both with great ambiance. Fresh oregano fettuccine was superb. Clam chowder was perfectly seasoned and not heavy. Will definitely go back here again.

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

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.
