IL MULINO NEW YORK The Best of Italy in South Beach Words by Claudia Paredes • Photo credit Erika Cespedes Il Mulino New York in South Beach offers a wide range of traditional Italian dishes, cocktails, and wine. Their unique décor is inspired by the popular Art Deco scene found exclusively in Miami Beach. The high style design—white walls, white tablecloths, and white chairs—give it an elegant and classy vibe. And the open dining room features large, white framed magazine covers of The New Yorker and Vogue. On the back wall, their extensive wine collection is displayed and ready to be served. This is not a rustic Italian experience. This is luxury dining. The service at Il Mulino New York is remarkable. If you're looking to come in on a Saturday and would like to avoid the crowds, we recommend making a reservation for lunch. Most likely, you will score a table by the window and enjoy a quiet meal. Upon being seated by the host, your server will begin to roll out a variety of complimentary side dishes, such as freshly carved parmesan from a gigantic cheese wheel. Before ordering, the server brings out a bread board with four different types of bread and a cocktail glass filled with Truffle Chips. A proper Italian course should not start without a proper serving of bruschetta, which is also complimentary and assembled at your table—right in front of you! These are all generous portions, so make sure you save some room for the main course. Once you are ready to order your main course, feel free to ask your server for recommendations. The staff is very friendly and know about the ingredients used in every dish—they will make the decision-making process easier, since there are many options to choose from. Il Mulino New York offers chicken, veal, pasta, and seafood. If you decide to go for lunch, there is a $25 prix fixe menu, where you can choose three items: an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. Start, for example, with a tomato salad with onions, cucumber, feta, and herbs. Then, as a main course try the langostino, jumbo prawns with sautéed spinach; and have the tiramisu for dessert.
