Miles Table misses the mark

A friend and I ate at Miles Table on South Street Saturday, and I immediately loved the modern yet cozy eatery feel. The food also sounded absolutely scrumptious. Vegan chili mole topped with fresh avocado and a fried egg? Yes.

Obviously the fried egg on the soup made it, well, not vegan, but I ordered it anyway because I didn’t care. Then my friend and I, after ten minutes of gazing (and drooling) at the menu on the wall, finally decided to split the Kennet Pizza (mushrooms, tallegio, truffle, arugula) and the Miles Burger (ground chuck, bacon, remoulade, cheddar, lettuce, tomato and onion on brioche).

It seemed like a meal I’d rave about after consumption, and when the plates hit the table, I was ready to dive in. Presentation? Impeccable.

But the plates fell short on taste.

The chili mole was well balanced, not too sweet, and I got a hearty serving, definitely a perfect lunch option with maybe a salad. The avocado was fresh as promised, but the egg was overdone. When I broke it open, it didn’t ooze into my soup as I’d imagined. But overall, the dish was good enough.

Then I moved on to the Kennet. The crust resembled more of a flatbread than a pizza, which I didn’t mind. For the first five bites I was in heaven, but then I started noticing how salty it was. By my second piece, it was salt overload and I was done.

The Miles Burger was pretty good—juicy, medium rare just how I like it, with solid ingredients. But it definitely didn’t make my list of top five burgers. The fries, however, were perfect. Ask for them extra crispy.

I give Miles Table a three out of five for the meal. But I'll probably go back. I'd like to try their salads and some of the other sandwiches. Plus, Magpie Pies is next door.
