So our dinner at Talula's Table was wonderful. The table was beautifully set, there are only two tables in the restaurant/shop. We got there a little early, to make sure everything was ready for when our guests started arriving. Menus were on the table.

We began with an older white wine that we had brought whilst we were waiting, from an area in France that now goes by a different name, so the label had the older appellation on it. Then when friends and family, my brother and his wife arrived we served Champagne, a Delamot 2014. Conversation was brisk, and fun, everybody was having a great time and the wines that were brought were passed around liberally. I know we had a Saumur, a Baresco, a dry Riesling, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a white Chateau Neuf du Pape, and several more which I forget but were all lovely.

 

The meal began with several amuses bouche before the Salmon Mosaic.

They also served several different breads as well with wonderful local butter. I forgot to take photos of everything, but I did take one of the Dorade which was amazing.

The pork was delicious, a small flat croquette, everything was smaller portions which was good as there were a lot of courses. Annie had brought a dessert wine to share as well.

Overall everyone loved the evening, and it was a great success. I was happy we had Ubered as we drank a lot of wine. I needed a quiet morning to recover today.

The wines

Not sure when we will go again, as it requires a serious commitment to book several months ahead and assemble a group to enjoy the evening. Now I think I am going to take a short nap.

Hello Nick - I wonder if reading a menu counts as a literary adventure as well as one that feeds the appetite of a neer do well gourmand like me.  Anyway, the evening sounds quite nice.

A tasting menu like that is the best way to enjoy a culinary experience. A well-earned nap for you Nick.

Endre Barath, Jr. I mentioned the wines I could remember, frankly there was too much wine, I know one should never say that, but it all got very fuzzy towards the end.

Kat Palmiotti everyone had a good time.

Brian England it actually sounded fancier than it was, it tasted great and was very good.

Matt Brady I needed one badly.
