Mildred's temple kitchen?
Is Mildred's Temple Kitchen open yet? Has anyone been? And while I am on the topic: anyone been to Oasi?
I gather they had a soft opening during the last couple of weeks and we got the official opening notice today. Other than the address and a link to open table, there is no info on their new website.
I went there for brunch on saturday.
Somewhat resembles C5 in a sense that there is a lot of space, plenty of breathing room.
Similiarities end there. They have kept with the loftish feel. Think of flooding a huge space with pickings from the ikea catalogue. That's what we thought anyway.
We had ricotta gnudi with berkshire pork bits, fried sage and plenty of caramelized onion, very well done, sweet and starchy. loved it.
roast chicken biryani, i expected a bit more pilau, the chicken was tender and juicy. The crispy skin was slathered in a braised onion sauce. I believe there was also some chutney.
poached grouper was bland, tasteless, in a leek broth i believe, surrounded by delicious organics. Lots of heirloom potatoes, winter greens. I would have loved the stock as asoup, but the fish, was boring.
apple tart finished it off, excellent.
Came to around $80. Fish was $26, Chicken was $25, gnudi was $13
I like the space, the bar, lots of ambient light.
Service is very careful, almost annoying (because of the constant hovering and questioning) but i understand that they're just trying very diligently to please everyone.
Obviously the menu is still being worked on, would return
