Talula’s Garden
review by Margaret Shakespeare

Washington Square (the bar) has made Washington Square (the neighborhood) a destination. For U. Penn law students, Walnut Street Theater-goers, medical types from surrounding institutions and others, it’s quickly become a comfort zone for ‘the usual’ on a daily basis.

Two Chefs’
review by Patricia Veloso

The dowdy stripmall location may not excite dreams of faraway places, but Chef Jan Jorgensen’s 38-bottle rum menu certainly might. Ports of call include Jamaica’s oak-aged Plantation Reserve ($12), Haiti’s 15-year-old Estate Reserve Barbancourt ($10), Guyana’s 15-year-old El Dorado ($18) and Guatemala’s almost Cognac-like Zacapa Centenario ($14).

review by Douglas Trattner

Fahrenheit keeps its neighborhood happy. Located in the hip Tremont district, Fahrenheit is where chefs come to eat on their Mondays off. Chef Rocco Whalen, former sous chef to Wolfgang Puck, knows how to toss a mean pizza pie. Thin, wheaty and impossibly crispy, it’s the perfect starter ...Read the full review
