Mildred Temple Kitchen has long been on my list of where to eat. It’s a bit of a trek for me (liberty village), so I made a special effort to book it this year!
Their space wowed me. It’s such a lovely, well designed, modern space. It was also way bigger than I expected. There was an open area where you could watch the chefs.
The service was good, if a bit impersonal. Out waiter took our orders and quietly served our food. Not a lot of interaction. It didn’t matter though, because we were busy eating. They started us off with warm cheddar thyme biscuits with sweet butter. The biscuits were flaky and were a perfect way to start the meal.
The lobster tortilla soup was a lemongrass soup with Nova Scotia lobster and interesting tortilla hay pieces. I had the crunchy panko-crusted shrimp and crab cakes with a tangy chili-lime emulsion.
Next up was my dauntingly tall Mildred Temple burger. It was simply dressed with delicious crispy tobacco onions and a sweet tomato relish. The burger was served on a freshly baked bun. It was so good! My friend had the pan roasted halibut, with a succotash of shell beans & charred squash. She loved that it was topped with crispy kale.
Finally it was dessert! My friend had the crème caramelwith caramel sauce and I had profiteroles (that I could barely finish, so full!) filled with Lindt milk chocolate ice cream It was so good, I need to find out where to buy that ice cream!
Over all, this was the perfect experience to kick start my Winterlicious! Check out the rest of their menu for this event. I need to come back to experience their brunch!
