For more than seven years, Chefs Slade Rushing and Alison Vines-Rushing have poured their Southern souls into MiLa. Alison hails from Mississippi. Slade grew up in Louisiana; both cheffed in New York City. With that experience, the couple returned to their roots to cook a modern expression of the foods they love best. But modernity at MiLa has nothing to do with molecular wizardry and everything to do with concentrating flavors into artfully presented and subtle dishes. Slade and Alison are perhaps the city’s best culinary editors. Their plates are streamlined with just the right balance of ingredients. There’s no smack down of spice or garlic or brine—the dishes of the South whisper a sweet, soulful song.
