There’s no denying that Harbor East has become a culinary destination with stalwarts like Charleston and Roy’s and newbies like Talara and Bagby Pizza Co. Even the geographical lines are starting to blur as the ritzy 'hood edges into nearby areas.
Now, a new restaurant—Milan, featuring eclectic Italian/Mediterranean cuisine—will open late this fall, according to Profiles, a media-relations agency. The new restaurant, shadowing Harbor East and Little Italy, on the corner of Eastern Avenue and Exeter Street, will feature three levels of space with a modern design and contemporary music. The main floor will house a sushi bar and a lounge surrounding a U-shaped, 30-seat bar.
In addition to Milan’s signature menu—focusing on grilled meats, hand-made pastas, bruschetta, and flatbreads—it will offer guests a selection of traditional Italian fare at an adjoining lower level cafe to be called Intermezzo.
The area's becoming positively European with a restaurant on every corner.
