Milan's Executive Chef Stephen Carey combines traditional Italian recipes with modern techniques and Mediterrean flavors, resulting in a culinary-fashionable Italian-inspired sushi menu. The full menu features steaks, pastas, bruschetta, and more. Start with a small plate, such as the lobster mac and cheese (chiocciole pasta, smoked gouda bechemel, white truffle essence, and citrus pistachio gremolata, $14) before shoveling down the Ensalata Mondeghili ($14), which features Milan's signature Veal/Kobe beef meatball, spinach-fontina stuffing, mixed greens, and Milan's house dressing. All pastas, like the shrimp and lobster clad Linguine Peppa ($28), are freshly made in-house, while meatier fare, like the the savory charms of the 12-oz. New York Strip ($36) accompanied with spinach-lobster butter and Maine-lobster mashed potatoes, sates mega-appetites. For mid-day diners, Milan has recently added lunch service.
Milan's three levels and 12,000 square feet fuse newfangled eats and high fashion with an opulently white dining area that's straight out of a stylish '70s sci-fi fever dream. Milan's fashion-centric ethos means that a dress code is enforced so please put away your rainbow beanie-copter before perusing a cocktail menu composed of fashion-designer-inspired martinis, such as the Versace, a delicate blend of Grand Marnier Chambord and cranberry juice, finished off with a sugary rim ($11).
- Milan definitely has a wow factor. Even the most jaded diner will be jolted out of lethargy with its dramatic white-and-crimson color scheme downstairs and the silver-and-white contemporary treatment on the second level. – Suzanne Loudermilk, Baltimore magazine
- The room is quite bright when the afternoon sun is beaming in but at night it becomes more subdued. We were seated in one of two alcoves with metallic beaded curtains. The space was quite sexy and dark, ideal for privacy and romance. – Dara Bunjon, Examiner
- Milan offers a very wide selection of wines, 150 currently, and offer a diverse and food friendly selection of wines by the glass. I started the evening with a pretty solid Rioja, but ended it with an absolutely delicious viognier… – Greg, Food & Wine Blog
- The food and the ambience was great. I would recommend it to all my friends. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 05/15/2010
Milan's chef blends traditional Italian recipes with creative flair when grilling marinated rib-eye steaks and hand-rolling fresh pastas. Grilled swordfish, spinach pasta, filet mignon, and a braised lamb take separate spotlights on dinner plates, guarded by sidekicks such as butternut squash and roasted fingerling potatoes. Sunday-brunch spreads treat taste buds to gourmet entrees such as lump-crab omelets and belgian waffles with cannoli filling, plus mimosas mixed with only the tears of overjoyed oranges.
Milan's three levels and 12,000 square feet fill with jovial chatter, and an opulent white dining area lets patrons bask in futuristic style without sneaking into an astronaut's nest. The restaurant maintains a fashion-centric ethos, meaning proper dining attire is required.
