Just asked them about this, sadly it was taken off the menu a day ago.
I must say, I am not enjoying myself at Milo and Olive much.
I quite enjoy myself at Cassia, Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry and Esters…
But Milo and Olive doesn’t seem to be executing on the same level at all.
I’m still finishing off a bottle of wine as I type this; a fairly nice Montepulciano d’abruzzo. Although I find it a tad strange they don’t tell the servesr anything about the bottles, fortunately, I know that Cirellia Collina is a pleasant natural wine to drink on a lazy Wednesday afternoon.
And they were nice enough to take the garlic knot and the chopped salad off my bill so far. I’ll tip on both those dishes since at least the service is good.
But I just don’t get these dishes. I guess you aren’t supposed to eat the garlic in the garlic knot? This wasn’t explained to be at the time of ordering, though. I found myself chewing garlic skins and a sort of limp mush that was mostly flavorless, yet somehow heavy and pungent at the same time… it made me sick in the attempt to ingest it.
The chopped salad had some nice pickled peppers and pepperoni, but the so-called red wine viniagrette was beyond flavorless. I actually tried sucking on some pieces of “dressed” veggies to see if I could detect any flavor and got nothing.
I feel bad sending back 2 out of 2 dishes, and they said I maxed out my comps. So I am just finishing off the bottle of wine by itself.
Feel strange. I was really hoping I could trust in the general restaurant group for tasty food to go with interesting/fun wine.
At least the service is pretty solid. I just don’t get the food here at all, though.
