Milk & Honey

Review by: Michael Stern

1501 Long Street, aka Market South, is a modern trio of eateries run by the Monen Family Restaurant Group, which also has a burger restaurant, a pizzeria, a brewery, and a couple of taco joints elsewhere. Milk & Honey, one of MF’s enterprises (of which there’s also a branch in Nashville), began as a coffee bar and gelato counter but has since become a destination also for breakfast, lunch, and brunch.

The menu is contemporary, unsurprising. You can have avocado toast, chicken and waffles, or a familiar breakfast sandwich. More outlandish breakfast sandwiches make a meal memorable. The Hot Mess, for example, is bacon, avocado, pickled onion, pepper jack cheese, chipotle cream, a sunnyside-up egg, and hot pepper jam all stacked in a buttermilk biscuit.

Milk & Honey notes that its biscuits are homemade. (One assumes the home referred to is Market South.) They are stout; they are not squishy; their taste is of buttermilk. Too bad they are hard, not fluffy, and their flavor is overwhelmed by whatever they sandwich. That’s alright with a fried chicken biscuit, because the chicken is good: its crust brightly seasoned, its white meat moist enough. It comes topped with sharp cheddar, which is good, and with honey hot sauce, which adds a brilliant sticky halo, making this a best dish.

The dining area is as spacious as a mall food court and 1501 Long Street can be confusing. A newcomer will wonder which of the restaurants is where. A friendly member of the waitstaff at the coffee counter will point you in the right direction.
