Chef vacancy at Talula's Garden

Stephen Starr confirms that Matt Moon, named only recently, has left.

Chef vacancy at Talula's Garden

Talula's Garden, the Stephen Starr-Aimee Olexy joint in Washington Square, is looking for an executive chef.

Matt Moon, who signed on earlier this month after the sudden departure of Michael Santoro, has left, Starr confirms. Foobooz speculated on the departure this morning.

Moon had spent much time in Olexy's employ as chef at Talula's Table in Kennett Square, which seats 16 -- about a tenth of Talula's Garden's capacity and about a fifteenth of its nightly kitchen output.

"Aimee's hands are firmly on this restaurant," Starr said. "These are her ideas to begin with."
