Throw some string lights in a garden just about anywhere and we’re confident it’ll be a great date spot. But the cheese selection, long wine list, and rotating menu of seasonal, produce-heavy dishes make Talula’s one of our absolute go-tos for dinner with someone you like. And even if there’s no room outside, or it’s 19 degrees out in January, the dining room is perfectly nice, too.
