Culinary It couple Aimee Olexy and Bryan Sikora of cult restaurant Talula’s Table split up in 2010; a year later Olexy went on to found Talula’s Garden with Philadelphia empire builder Stephen Starr, and Sikora signed on to run a. kitchen in the AKA Hotel on Rittenhouse Square. The decor is minimalist and Scandinavian-inspired (white oak floors and booths, marble counters) while Sikora’s sophisticated, seasonal cooking—chicken liver mousse with sour cherry compote, cavatelli and sweet corn broth with roasted mushrooms—is complemented by a 200-bottle list that emphasizes natural wines.
