I came here SUPER spontaneously while on a trip to Central Florida… I had some time to drive and the yelp reviews were practically unanimous! If you were visiting St. Petersburg and only had time for one meal, you can’t do much better than The Mill.
To start, the service is excellent and I highly recommend sitting outside if you can. It amps the ambiance up by 10x.
Here’s my rundown:
Mill Old Fashioned does NOT disappoint. I never would have thought to use chocolate bitters, but it provides the perfect backdrop to the Demerara & the bourbon.
Watermelon Bruschetta — whaaa you say? How could such disparate flavors live in harmony? Well let me tell you, there is something special about sitting on the street of St. Pete and noshing down on sweet watermelon, honey crystals, salty feta cheese, and feeling the ocean breeze carry the music to you from down the street. Definitely can’t go wrong with this and there’s a reason the waiter said they never take it off their menu!
To close I had the Southern Belle salad, which is accurately described as an entree. The hot fried chicken with the honey dressing was a perfect foil to the watermelon bruschetta… I wanted to eat it all it was so good! Glad they have to go boxes
Super glad I checked this place out, and looking forward to helping others discover it!
