TALK Is Now Open in Rittenhouse
Tim Lanza and Andrew Kochan's new Walnut Street spot quietly debuted over the weekend.
The structure of their debut menu is the opposite of the prix-fixe-only Marigold Kitchen in University City, which the duo took over back in 2014. Rather, Lanza and Kochan are sticking with a set menu format — small and large plates plus a selection of sweets, all built around seasonal flavor combinations accented with unique ingredients (fermented almond, gooseberry, huitlacoche, tonka bean).
Drinks-wise, they’ve got a slate of intriguing cocktails like the electric-purple Heavenly Blues (made with gin, Luxardo Maraschino cherries, lemon, house-made creme de violette and shaved ice), a short but solid list of domestic and international wines, and craft beers. They’ll be adding happy hour and brunch service soon, too.
