Best Wine List
Here’s a list that calls for a toast. The size and diversity of Tallula’s cellar has made this upscale casual restaurant in Lyon Park—opened in 2004 by Neighborhood Restaurant Group—a wine lover’s destination.
With 60 wines by the glass and 400 selections by the bottle, diners can explore all major Old and New World wine regions, while enjoying chef Nate Waugaman’s Southern-inspired menu. Price points range from a $26 sparkling red Puianello Lambrusco from Italy (great with the chef’s charcuterie) to a celebratory $325 2004 Torbreck “Run Rig” Australian shiraz.
“We take a lot of care in what we select—well-made wines representative of the region they are from, in all price ranges,” says general manager Matt Molaski.
