Milo and Olive

We have made Thursday late afternoon our “go to” place. We never order or even look at a menu. We just let Jason cook and we are lucky to have the “best of the best.”

Jason at Milo

Wonderful Jason

We are very fortunate that Milo and Olive allow us to BYO – we share with everyone – both the front of the house and of course Jason and his wonderful sous – Shahon.

Milo black truffle

Black Truffle from Piedmont

Milo egg dish

Jason called this “Bacon and Eggs.” It was an egg custard made with egg yolk, milk, cream, cayenne, nutmeg, salt and pepper made in a bain marie at 275 degrees for 50 minutes on the bottom rack. (I do ask a lot of questions and the best part is that I get exact answers!) The custard was served with Nueske’s bacon, peas and black truffles. What an exquisite dish.

The egg mixed up.

Milo - chestnut soup

Chestnut Soup – made from fresh chesnuts from Italy, a white mire poix (celery, onion, fennel), plugra butter, roasted chicken stock, heavy cream and finished at the last moment with a touch of dark rum. It was topped with creme fraiche, fried sage and some of the roasted chestnuts that had been roasted in the hot pizza oven. Delicious!

Milo - rissotto

Risotto, parmesan cheese, finished with a bit of Chandon champagne and those wonderful black truffles from Piedmont. A++

Milo - prawns

Roasted prawns, pea pesto (peas, pine nuts, garlic, mint, parsley, lemon juice), marjoram – what made this dish was the pea pesto – Jason has an extraordinary “feel” for  vegetables.

milo - pork belly

Slow-roasted Pork belly, whole grain mustard, pickles, brussel sprouts, Persian cucumber, Fuyu Persimmon – another winner

Milo - short ribs

Short Ribs, Muscat de Provence squash, kale, shallots, garlic confit, black truffles, black truffle butter – rich and hearty – a perfect winter dish

What a marvelous meal with superb service. If you just eat pizza at Milo and Olive you are missing out on having a tremendous meal.

    i check almost every day to see if you have a new post, I drool over my screen when you do. I wish I could be a 3rd wheel with your lovely meals. I went to the French Laundry for the 1st time for our 20th anniversary back in September and thought of you and your many posts from there for a moment. Thanks for the wonderful posts!

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote
    the e-book in it or something. I believe that you could do with some % to power the message
    home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
