2012 Locus Syrah On Talulah’s Wine List

Brunch_Tallulahs-22012 Locus Stonetree Vineyard Syrah is now on Linda Derschang’s latest creation, Tallulah’s, a stylish and comfortable neighborhood cafe in North Capitol Hill.

The design of Tallulah’s is inspired by Morocco and Spain, a love of mid-century design and the feeling of Big Sur in the 1970’s. There is a large outside garden area for warm weather dining, a long marble bar and the space has a light, airy feeling with plenty of natural light (The chairs at the bar look funky but are very comfortable).

Chef Walter Edward has created a menu that is vegetable-driven without being vegetarian, with a razor sharp focus on seasonality and simplicity.

It feels good to make the short list on a menu that is simultaneously seasonal and elegant, with flavor profiles that are simple and complex in the same bite.
