Stephen Starr and Aimee Olexy, building on Talula's Garden and Talula's Daily on Washington Square, are setting up in Fishtown for their next project.

The ink is barely dry on a liquor license application at 1526-30 Frankford Ave., a former warehouse a few blocks north of his beer garden, Frankford Hall, and barbecue restaurant, Fette Sau.

The long-derelict building was restored last year.

The property has a large yard.

Starr told me that the name and concept are not final but that the yard will contain a vegetable garden when it opens this spring.
