Milan's grand opening set for Jan. 15
MIDNIGHT SUN EXCLUSIVE*: Milan, the upscale restaurant and lounge in Little Italy, will have its grand opening Jan. 15.
It's a large space, with three levels, a U-shaped bar which seats 30 and an outdoor patio, according to a press release. The goal is to create a vibe that's similar to Pazo. Milan's catchphrase is, "Where food meets fashion." Translation: Where jet-setters spill pasta sauce on their fancy shirts.
Hee hee. ...
I'm not going to get into the menu, which involves steaks, hand-made pastas and Italian sushi (don't ask). I'll leave that up to Elizabeth Large. I do want to share some of the more scrumptious-sounding cocktails, though.
First, the martinis.
1) Dolce & Gabbana, $11, made with Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur, Stoli Razberi, a splash of club soda and fresh raspberries.
2) Gucci Envy, $10, made with Absolut Apple, sour apple liqueur and a splash of Midori and pineapple juice.
Now, the cocktails.
1) Passion of Milan, $8, made with Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Passion Fruit Rum, ice tea and a splash of lime juice.
2) Various mojitos, $10-$12. Mmm ... mojitos.
Management is still working on a Web site, but here is the URL.
Stay tuned. I'm sure there is more to come.
*I couldn't resist the all-caps. They're big, bold, brash ... and beautiful.
