Talula's Table - Tasting Menu

I've been following David McDuff's food blog and recently read about the wonderful meal he shared with friends at Talula's Table in Kennett Square http://mcduffwine.blogspot.com/2007/0... I'd LOVE to be a part of a dining experience like that, but I don't have too many friends willing to spend $85 per person (plus the cost of the wine we bring).

Any CHers interested in creating a special evening at Talula's Table?

  1. I know this post is from about 6 months ago, but after reading the review Craig LeBan had in last Sunday's paper, wondering if anynoe is now interested? This sounds like a great evening but like the prior poster, don't have the group willing to spend the money.

      I'd be interested in going....

      1. re: FayeD

        I'm still interested, too. Just know that after tax & tip, the tab is about $105. And that doesn't include the cost of wine that we'd bring ourselves.

        1. re: CindyJ

          I understand that the total cost would be what you said. Still interesed in going if we can find another couple.

          1. re: FayeD

            We a fortyish couple and would love to give this a try.

              My e mail address is FayeD1@AOL.com. I don't check it every day but will try and check later today since I will be out of touch on Sunday and Monday. I will check availability, but other than a Fri. or Sun (with a holiday Mon.) may not work for us.

      2. I recommend planning far in advance - I know that they're booked for 2007 and have only weeknights available for 2008!

          What the heck did they fill up after the inquirer article??

          1. re: leepinleemur

            Well, the place only accommodates 10 people for one seating per night, so it fills up fast..

            1. re: leepinleemur

              Even when I first checked this out several months ago, there was a wait of a couple of months for a weekend evening.

            2. re: whenyourhyme

              I'll stop in tomorrow and talk with Aimee. I believe they can accommodate up to 12 for dinner.

              1. re: CindyJ

                I sent you a separate note on this so count me in. I will wait to hear from you.

            3. I realize it may seem like a teaser at this point but I managed to sneak in for a peak at the current Autumn tasting menu a few days ago. You can find a write-up and photos of the meal at:

              http://mcduffwine.blogspot.com/2007/1...

              The table does seat anywhere between 8-12. It's booked solid into Spring 2008 so act fast if you want to get in before summer returns....

                I'll tell you this, Dave, you sure know how to hurt a girl! You must have some friends in high places.

                I chatted with Aimee for a bit today and, as the "rumor mill" has reported, Talula's Table is solidly booked through June. In fact, they've stopped taking reservations for now, and will open their reservation book again after New Years to accept reservations for summer/fall/holidays 2008. So maybe we'll have a fall menu after all, only it won't be for THIS fall. By the way, I'm counting on having you do the wine pairing for this event.

                I did add my name to Aimee's list and she promises to call me when Talula's begins to accept new reservations. So for those of you who have contacted me or posted here to express an interest in this dinner, be patient -- good things are worth waiting for.

              2. Hello all,
                Reviving the Talula's thread seems to have become my purview. I had the chance to stop in recently to check out their current tasting menu. Full details and photos can be found at:

                http://mcduffwine.blogspot.com/2007/1...

                The reservation books will open again soon for dates in the second half of 2008; details can be found at the end of the story via the above link.
