Bites & Bubbles

It happens to me that Bites & Bubbles, the Mills 50 restaurant from longtime nearby restaurateurs Eddie Nickell and Nicholas Olivieri, is to some degree misnamed.

Not the Bubbles component. There is a a incredibly pleasant list that does in truth include things like glowing wines as perfectly as very good selections of however wines, both by the glass and by the bottle, and craft cocktails, as well.

But Bites? That conjures visuals of nibbles and noshes or tapas-sized tidbits. That does not describe the parts right here, which, primarily based on my numerous visits, have been enough and filling. And superior quality, way too.

BitesBubbles dip

The Smoked Fish Dip is a scenario in level. My companion and I purchased the dip whilst we awaited for two other mates to be part of us. We figured it would be anything to tide us around. As an alternative, it turned out to be not only a significant mound of the titular white fish, delightful on its very own, but the presentation also included an sufficient array of pickled vegetables – okra, yellow tomatoes, eggplant, gigante beans – and a spicy spreadable sausage with a few varieties of breads on which to distribute it. I would have been happy – and entire – with this as my only variety.

But we moved on to other merchandise. 1 of my company selected the Pork Tummy, a sizable slab served atop a spherical polenta cake and topped by a beautifully cooked sunnyside-up egg. The meat was tender and experienced a superb mouthfeel, and the runny yolk extra to the oozy goodness. A bit of pepper jelly was involved.

BitesBubbles sliders

Even the trio of Bison Sliders had been extra substantial than your operate-of-the-mill slider. The patties ended up thick sufficient to be cooked to a requested temperature, and they had been served on toasted buns with thick slices of tomato, melted pepperjack cheese and a slathering of tomato jam. The fries that my friend ordered to accompany the dish had been so thick they truly must have been called potato wedges.

BitesBubbles tuna

I selected the Ahi Tuna Tostada Stack, a tower of sticky rice, creamy avocado, crispy tortillas and a mound of sushi quality tuna cubes topped with sprouts. The dish was served with chopsticks but I discovered it ideal to use my fork to knock it all down and consume it in forkfuls.

BitesBubbles dessert

For dessert we had the Affogato, a large bowl of ice product with bombolini puffs stuffed with Nutella as well as nutty wafers. Following it was brought to the desk, our host poured sizzling espresso over it. Nice presentation.

Incredibly nice on temperate evenings. The key floor also characteristics a significant bar and indoor dining tables as properly as back and facet patios for additional al fresco eating. The decor within is upscale funk, with crystal chandeliers a focal level.

Service was attentive and intuitive.
