Talula’s Table in Kennett Square is a charming little prepared-foods store that we’ve written about before. We’ve mentioned the mind-boggling wait for a meal at their one eat-in table before, which the Philadelphia Inquirer once compared to Thomas Keller and Michael Mina’s best.
Now Condé Nast business mag Portfolio has picked up on it:
Diners have included chefs, writers, tycoons, musicians, mushroom farmers, plastic surgeons, and actors. John Turturro traveled down from Brooklyn with his wife, Kathie Borowitz, on Valentine’s Day; a friend had praised Talula’s food so lavishly that Turturro had to see for himself. “I was a little dubious at first, but the dinner surpassed my highest expectations,” Turturro said after a banquet of egg custard with Jonah crab, exotic mushroom risotto, snails in rigatoni farci, roast pompano, osso buco and house-smoked bacon, lamb and wildflower honey, and an array of winter blue cheeses.”Each dish was a separate love affair,” Turturro said. “It was the kind of a meal you’d request before your execution.”
