I was invited to Milan* to sample some menu items and explore the new restaurant. When you walk in and make your way up the stairs you are welcomed with trendy and contemporary music flowing among the modern, bold, stylish atmosphere with white, crimson red and espresso colors. It offers three levels for dining plus an outdoor patio that over looks the streets of Little Italy. The main floor includes a sushi bar and lounge surrounding a U-shaped, 30-seat bar perfect for a social gathering with friends.
The menu offers a blend of modern Italian cuisine infused with Mediterranean flavor that is prepared by Executive Chef Stephen Carey. As you gaze over the menu you can find fresh grilled steaks, hand-made pastas, bruschetta, flatbreads and sushi Italiano, as well as wines and blended cocktails inspired by world-renown fashion designers.
To start with each table is served fresh bread and an olive tapenade. As we contemplated over what enticing items to try we sipped on fresh brewed ice tea and a Mojito Classico ($10)- Bacardi rum with fresh mint leaves and lime, simple syrup, a splash of lime juice and club soda. Make sure to also check out the cocktail menu that offers top-rated Italian and world wines and blended cocktails inspired by world-renown fashion designers.
