Alexis: Finally got to try Bar Milano. The team behind 'ino, 'inoteca (two of my absolute favorites) and Lupa partnered once again to open their top tier wine bar. We went on a really drizzly Saturday afternoon at around 2pm and were seated at a quiet corner in the dining room as the bar was full. Lots of natural light which I loved, and very simple design. The highlight of the room is the entire wall covered in wine cases.
Alexis: I ordered a glass of prosecco and the Parmesan & Prosciutto plate, which came with 18-month old cheese and three generous slices of the fatty ham. A bit plain but I got what I ordered. Delicious with the focaccia.
Alexis: Overall, a good experience. I'd go back to try other things on the menu, especially not during brunch hours. However this is definitely not my favorite of the restaurants. I'm loyal to 'ino for it's cozier feel and comforting menu.
Alexis: ***1/2 Points for the really knowledgeable waitress, decor and wine selection. A bit pricey for what it is but maybe that's location for you.
