Trattoria Il Mulino Opens in Houston
Now Open: Trattoria Il Mulino
On Thursday, March 24th, Houston welcomes a touch of New York’s West Village with an exciting, new restaurant: Trattoria Il Mulino.
An off-shoot of the famed Il Mulino New York, Trattoria Il Mulino offers a casual, family-friendly dining experience in a lively atmosphere with a menu emphasizing classic Italian cuisine from the Abruzzi region of Italy.
The amuse bouche was the most flavorful eggplant with garlic, basil and sun-dried tomatoes.The interior design of Trattoria IL Mulino, as its’ name implies, creates a fun, come as you are atmosphere for guests. The open concept and large exhibition kitchen make dining here fun for all. Our group decided to share our dishes family style so we could taste the most options.
The prices here will not break the bank. Most entrees were under $30. We split a margarita pizza, and enjoyed the veal parmesan – it is huge – it takes an entire plate. We also had veal piccata and cantelloni.
One of the specialties of the house at Trattoria Il Mulino is the house-made Grappa which has been a tradition in Northern Italy for centuries. At the bar, you can chose from a variety of house-made, infused grappas such as Pear, Blueberry, Strawberry, Fig, Raspberry, Apricot, and Raisin. The process consists of taking the distilled spirit and fermenting it with the fruit of your choice. We allow time, Mother Nature, and a little love to create these delectable digestifs. As a finale to your meal, we serve a complimentary pour of house-made Limoncello.
Trattoria Il Mulino is in the new Westin Houston Memorial City and open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 945 Gessner at I-10. For reservations, please call (832) 358-0600.
