MiLa Review

Chefs Slade Rushing and Allison Vines-Rushing, from Mississippi and Louisiana, respectively, merged the names and cuisines of their home states to produce MiLa. The restaurant defines a new Southern elegance with its comfy-chic atmosphere and its culinary tributes to each chef's childhood memories of Southern cooking. The results on the seasonally updated menu are dishes like oysters Rockefeller "deconstructed" and sweet tea–brined rotisserie duck. For the true insider experience, take a seat at the bar and try the hot deer sausage and cheddar biscuits. Much of the restaurant's produce comes from a farm in Mount Hermon, Louisiana. MiLa offers a very affordable ($20) three-course, prix-fixe lunch on weekdays.

    MiLa Review

    My wife and I were very disappointed by the dining experience at Mila. The service was poor, the food was fair, and the general atmosphere was very loud and forgettable. My barbequed lobster appetizer was fair only because a good portion of lobster was served. The flavor was very weak. But not as weak as my veal chop entree,that had no flavor whatsoever. I got the feeling that the meat had been frozen too long and the flavor had become "waterized". My wife had the deconstructed oysters that had some flavor, but nothing that one would remember. As for her entree, it was so forgettable that I don't even remember what it was...and, no, I'm not going to ask her and remind her of this experience that we consider a complete waste of our money.
