The Mildred Is Closed

First, The Mildred was closed for a vacation. Then we heard that, due to wild variations in the number of people actually in the dining room on any given night, it was going to stay dark through the summer. A couple days ago, news started leaking out that the closure at 8th and Christian was going to be somewhat more…permanent.

And now it’s official: The Mildred is done. Representatives for ex-chef and partner Michael Santoro (who already has a new gig, running the vegan kitchen at Charlie Was A Sinner for Nicole Marquis) announced early this morning that he and Michael Dorris have closed The Mildred and parted ways “amicably.”


Santoro is reportedly looking for more opportunities to open restaurants of his own in Center City.
