We decided to take mother deer out to Milestone’s for her birthday. Lil’ bun had never been to a bar style restaurant before so she found the entire experience to be quite amusing.
To start, we got the coconut calamari. It was unlike any calamari we have tried before because it was so lightly battered. They used the body of the squid for it and the meat remained “bouncy” in texture, meaning it was perfectly cooked.
I decided to get the Mediterranean chicken for my entree. The chicken was a little on the dry side since it was grilled chicken breast but that wasn’t too unexpected. I liked how they fried the kale and basil so they were chip-like in texture. The roasted cherry tomatoes helped add a pop of brightness to the dish.
Mother deer got the cajun shrimp creole because she had never tried this type of cuisine before. She said that it was spicier than she expected but it was a nice and comforting dish to have on a chilly day.
Brother deer got the steak frites. He said that the steak was more medium than medium rare but the gravy helped give it some more moisture. He said that the fries were twice fried so they weren’t soggy and the crispy onions on the side were a nice touch.
Pesto chicken penne asiago was lil’ bun’s pick. She loves her pasta and cheese so she had high expectations for this one. Lucky for her, it was super cheesy and so filling that she could only finish half of it! She said that it was a little bit spicy but nothing she couldn’t get over because it was too good to stop eating!
