Talula’s Garden Debuts Brunch This Sunday, Just In Time For Alfresco Dining Season

Aimee Olexy and Stephen Starr’s Talula’s Garden on Washington Square is one of the city’s best spots for outdoor dining.

Luckily, the restaurant has officially opened its gorgeous outdoor garden space, the perfect spot for a cocktail or meal this afternoon or evening. If we didn’t know better, we’d think it was the heart of spring given this perfectly sunny and breezy weather. (And here are a number of other options for dining alfresco tonight.)

The spot was recently named one of the five best restaurants in Philadelphia by Philadelphia InquirerRestaurant Critic Craig LaBan, thanks to its locally grown seasonal fare and award-winning craft cocktails.

This weekend brings the debut of brunch service at Talula’s Garden, and the forecast is equally promising for an under-the-sun mid-day meal.

In keeping with the restaurant’s farm-inspired dinner fare, Executive Chef Sean McPaul has created an a la carte brunch menu with highlights like Talula’s Little Donuts with Hazelnuts, Berries and Coffee Scented Chantilly Cream; Warm Crab Toast with Crumbled Bacon and Cucumber-Golden Beet Salad; Omelet of Kennett Mushrooms with Country Ham, Tender Spinach and Cabot Clothbound Cheddar; and much more.

Enjoy picturesque views of Washington Square Park while sipping on cocktails like The Haymaker, a muddled pear cooler with citrus clove and Smirnoff pear vodka; or The Butcher, a spicy bloody mary with Tito’s vodka and fresh horseradish.

Talula’s Garden will serve brunch every Sunday from 10a.m.-2 p.m. For reservations, call (215) 592-7787.
