One recent night, a tad burned out from a long holiday retail season, I felt the need to commiserate with some friends who would understand. And after a long day on my feet selling wine, I was also hungry. It made perfect sense then, at least to me, to head out to Kennett Square to check in on the holiday rush at Talula’s Table. It gave me the perfect opportunity to catch up with the team there, to pick up some tasty provisions for the home front and, as luck would have it, to taste what was coming out of the kitchen for the large party at the farmhouse table, one of the last reservations for Talula’s November/December tasting menu.
As I reported after my last visit, the private dinners at Talula’s Table were quickly booked solid all the way through June 2008 in the aftermath of Craig Laban’s rather glowing review in the Philadelphia Inquirer. If you’ve read this far, then you deserve to know that the calendar at Talula’s Table will soon re-open. At the start of business – that’s 7:00 AM – on January 2, 2008, the reservation books will open for the second half of 2008. Not that I want the staff at TT to be any more swamped but I might suggest calling early – and availing yourself of the redial function on your phone.
Finally, in the interest of journalistic integrity and full disclosure, I'd like you to know that this meal was comped by the owners of Talula's Table.
