Tallula’s has been given everything a restaurant needs to be successful. It comes from a very good family (the people behind your favorite Westside restaurants like Cassia and Milo & Olive). It’s in a big, group-friendly space just off PCH on the edge of the Palisades. And they serve modern, casual Mexican food in an area that doesn’t have much of it. But like a trust fund kid coasting along on his family’s name, Tallula’s isn’t living up to its full potential.
Our issue at Tallula’s boils down to the food. For the most part, it’s just boring – which is not what we’ve come to expect from this local dynasty of delicious food. With one or two exceptions, most of the dishes here lack any kind of excitement, and the spice levels seem to have been dialed down for what they must think is a delicate Westside palate. Apart from some tasty swordfish tacos, every dish is missing that X-factor element that makes it an interesting thing to put in your mouth.
