Even Carnivores Get Get Behind Mi Lah
Adam Erace finds that Mi Lah Vegetarian is a vegetarian restaurant that gives even a proud “bone-gnawing marrow seeker” reason to pause.
Chef Tyler Black is the man I credit with my would-be conversion. Instead of tricking you into thinking that block of tofu is a rib-eye, heâ€™ll plate up a half-pound of caramelized brussels sprouts with pistachio-studded potato gratin and dairy-free Meyer lemon beurre blanc. Thatâ€™s some vegan food I can get down with.
Black, a three-years-in vegetarian whose resume includes the Four Seasons, Govindaâ€™s and Horizons, teamed up with owner Jason Lay through Craigslist. Cambodia-born Lay launched Mi Lah (â€œmercyâ€) in October in a cozy two-story space with pea-green walls and pressed tin ceilings.
