Water main break at 7th and Locust Streets | @CBS3Mornings

The overnight water main break at 7th and Locust Streets is affecting Talula’s Daily and Talula’s Garden. Luckily, not because of water damage but because of water access. Talula’s Daily has a barebones menu and only iced coffee since it was brewed yesterday.

Talula’s Garden is awaiting feedback from the Philadelphia Water Department before making a decision on dinner service tonight.

UPDATE: Talula Daily’s “Secret Supper” will be happening as of 7 p.m. tonight. The market will reopen in the morning.

Yesterday’s dinner consisted of an heirloom tomato salad, grilled corn on the cob and some watermelon snagged off a friend’s dish. It was summer in a meal. Much like what is being offered at Talula’s Daily all month. The monthly tasting menu is all about  buttery lobster rolls, sweet corn soup, Lancaster porchetta with homemade beans and other summer barbecue standards. 

Talula’s Daily’s August dinner is a prix fixe affair, $55 per person with a beverage pairing available.

Three Bells for Talula’s Daily

Craig LaBan checks out Talula’s Daily and finds that Aimee Olexy has another hit on her hands.

My favorite dish of all my Daily meals, though, was the paper-wrapped surprise of skate en papillote. Almost always seared, the flesh took on an unexpectedly luxurious quality in a tangerine-scented steam, and concealed beneath its butter-glossed wing a trove of root vegetable treasures. Each was cut and cooked to a unique shape and texture, from weird and squiggly little crosnes, to earthy soft Jerusalem artichokes, snappy shaved ribbons of multihued raw carrots, bittersweet marbles of tender baby turnips, and crunchy cubes of al dente kohlrabi.

Philadelphia Restaurant Review: Talula’s Daily

The spell was lovely while it lasted. The gourmet market at Talula’s Daily had closed for the day at 7 p.m., and the “Secret Supper Club” had begun.

A glass bell jar capped a pint-sized cupcake platform. A ceramic owl was also a cookie jar. Bone china plates painted with chameleons or honeybees alternated with stoneware bearing zigzags or abstract circles. Delicately etched wine goblets sparkled above the dull gleam of mismatched silver-plated utensils.
