Last year, restaurateurs Aimee Olexy and Stephen Starr joined forces to create Talula’s Garden, a 102-seat restaurant in Philadelphia with the spirit of a gardener’s dinner table. Olexy designed the space herself, in conjunction with landscape design firm Groundswell. She likes “organic, undesigned spaces,” a contrast to Starr’s usual hyper-designed approach.
