Dining at the Milling Room
The Milling Room brings American cuisine back as the newest restaurant at this address. On two recent visits, we were quite impressed with what they were turning out. The prosciutto croquettes were amazingly creamy inside. The grilled octopus was set on top of a wonderful smoky eggplant puree. The roast farm chicken came with an amazingly crispy skin and nice, creamy polenta. The orzo mac and cheese was creamy and topped in crunchy bread crumbs.
But the most delicious items we tried were not printed on the menu of this fabulous Upper West Side restaurant: short rib sliders, with perfectly done short rib, soft but still with some bite, a seared bit of yummy foie atop a sweet rhubarb compote, and a delectable swiss chart-filled raviolo in a flavorful oil with poppy seeds and vinegar that I could have eaten bowls of.
