model milk

I had been wanting to check out Model Milk for quite some time and a friends birthday seemed the perfect occasion.  We ventured out in the snow and found the place on 17th avenue quite easily with the big white cow head above its doors.  It's a good thing we made reservations because the place was packed!

With service being a huge deal for me, I was thrilled with the awesome service we got from Andrew. He took the time to explain things and make recommendations.
We started with the cheese and chive fries which were perfect for munching on while we waited for the main course. The manchego cheese that topped the crispy fries added just enough saltiness.
For our main course, we had the Maple Hill fried chicken and waffles. We saw a few tables enjoying it as we walked in and we just had to try it for ourselves. The large format item for two was perfect for the three of us to share. With six pieces of chicken, it was easily dividable and was so filling. The chicken, cooked sous-vide style, was perfect. The outside was light and crispy, the inside was tender and juicy. The rosemary waffles paired well with the syrup covered chicken and the large plate of greens balanced out the meal.
Although we were stuffed, we had to try the dessert.  We ordered the peanut butter ice cream sandwich. The ice cream was creamy and the praline topping was the perfect crunch. So good!
All in all, it was a great evening. I look forward to going back!
