Aimee Olexy's Talula's Table in Kennett Square was an unlikely phenomenon—the little country market had a months-long backlog of reservations for its lone farmhouse table. Olexy's urban extension of that runaway success has no market and plenty of tables inside a sprawling, high-ceilinged space decorated with Alice Waters quotations printed on the walls. A charming outdoor courtyard with a garden glows under twinkly lights. The menu centers on seasonal flavors—the concept is garden to table. Knowledgeable servers do a great job guiding your choices from the split-pea soup to the caramelized sea scallops to the rhubarb cake. But you'll need the most guidance choosing from the six cheese boards with names like "Not Your Granny's" and "World's Best Blues."
