The best way to experience the pricey Estiatorio Milos down the street from City Center is to order their reasonable prix-fixe menu. Their pre-theater menu, served between 5:00-6:00 pm, offers three courses for $55, containing both the Faroe Islands sustainable organic salmon my friend ordered a la carte for $49 and the grilled Mediterranean Octopus, I ordered for $29.
But wait, I’m getting a bit ahead of myself.
We ate there wanting to be close to the theater where we were seeing In the Body of the World as it was quite cold out. The restaurant is known for their fish, their pricey fish. As you can see from the fish-0n-ice photo, the Dover Sole is $56/pound.
I got their late, as I was coming from the restaurant event downtown, and ordered only the lightly grilled sashimi quality Mediterranean octopus, served over pureed beans. My friend was half-way through her quite-small portion of the sustainable organic salmon with broccoli.
We skipped dessert, having only a cappuccino before heading to the curtain of the one-woman show by the Tony Award-winning author, performer and activist Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues) based on her memoir by the same name. While my friend couldn’t her eyes open at the performance, I worked hard to do so as we were in the front row. For a complete review of the show on TheaterPizzazz, click here.
