We've been walking by here since the restaurant opened a little over a year ago. This week, vowing to try someplace besides our favorites, and admittedly drawn by the 50% off promotion, we decided to try Miel.
This is a tough location to open a restaurant. On the corner of two lesser traveled streets and not near any other restaurants, the owners have succeeded in creating a vibrant space and dynamic menu. The dining room is quiet and decorated with some great contemporary art. We didn't go to the bar but we could see that it was well stocked. Many of the dishes on the menu contain honey (miel in spanish), hence the name. Choices are quite eclectic and things you won't find on most menus. A good blend of traditional Italian and Asian fusion. We started with the beef carpaccio which was insanely good, dressed with a light orange/honey sauce instead of balsamic vinegar. For our main courses we had the shrimp on garbanzo puree with mint rice and the fish with mango sauce. Both were beautifully presented but I think the portions were almost too small. We are not heavy eaters but we felt we could have eaten just a little more.
There is an extensive list of specialty cocktails, all priced at $70 pesos. Hard to beat.
Even with the 50% off promotion, they didn't seem to have many customers. We sure hope they make it because we look forward to many repeat visits.
