Milos Redux

Our first experience at Milos was Christmas Eve. It cost several pretty pennies, but it was a neat experience fit for a special occasion.

A couple months back Milos debuted a $20.11 three course lunch special available Monday-Friday noon-2:30pm. Yesterday, Frank and I met for lunch at the Cosmo to give Milos another whirl.

When we arrived a few minutes past noon there was a growing line outside the restaurant. The servers were running behind and as soon as they finished up the meeting of the minds we would be seated. Just as we were about to walk away, they began seating. We opted for an indoor table since it was a bit warm - hmmm, only about 104 - and we were warned that the misters weren't operational as they had recently caused a flood.

When we were seated Frank's booth was sprinkled with crumbs. Not something you'd expect from a restaurant of this caliber even if we were in for a special. Frank seemed hesitant to stay, I offered the opportunity to leave, but we stuck around. Fortunately, there were no other issues during the meal.

We noshed on grilled bread and olive oil while we waited on our first course.

Tomato Salad; a great summery dish. Light and refreshing.

Shrimp Saganaki; think bruschetta with shrimp and feta. Very tasty and the shrimp were perfectly cooked.

Lamb Chop; extremely tender and well- flavored. However, the sides were not notable.

Lavraki; flaky, lightly seasoned. Overall, a nice preparation. On par, with the fagri we had before (at a much higher cost).

Walnut Cake and Greek Ice Cream; very nutty cake rich with spice. I liked it best with the ice cream. Frank disagreed.

It really is one of the better deals running right now. This lunch special is a great way to sample the refined Greek cuisine that made Milos famous.
