Talula's Table last night

It's everything it's made out to be folks. Charming welcome and service, the best food we've had in the area (right up there with LBF) in the five years we've been here, relaxed timing, comfortable table. Ranks among the top dining experiences in my life. They start around 7:15 and you're finished eating at about 10:30.

I had been dreading seven courses at one sitting, but the size of the portions was perfect. You could have every bite of every course, including the bread they brought out, and not come out feeling overstuffed at the end. Mind you, I don't think I could have had much more to eat.

With tax and tip, $115 a head. Certainly a bargain for the quality (and number of courses). I am a big fan of Birchrunville Store Cafe, and I'm not likely to stop going, but they have just been unseated as Best of Chester County in my view.

We took their wine recommendations. If you call Moore Brothers in Delaware, it turns out one of their guys (David McDuff, a frequent contributor to these boards) is a friend of Bryan and Aimee and works with them on wine recs. One of our party brought a grand old Chateauneuf-du-Pape from the 80s, and I was delegated to pick up the other wines. Thanks to David, we got the last two bottles of the Viognier they were recommending for the fish course. I'm somewhat embarrassed to say this, but 10 of us went through 9 bottles and didn't feel we overindulged.

The only sad thing about TT is that the earliest we can get back is a full year from now. Assuming our friend (and organizer) was able to get the reservation for April 3 of 2009.

I can't recommend this enough for really dedicated foodies.
