Miro Kitchen, Fairfield, CT, USA   PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Shor Rib Benedict - photo by Luxury Experience Sunday Brunch at Miro Kitchen in Fairfield, Connecticut was perfect; a relaxing meal in an attractive space that began with tasty brunch cocktails and culminated with Banana Fosters French Toast with candied banana, coconut whipped cream, and chocolate maple syrup. Owned by Eugene Kabilnitsky, the restaurant opened in March 2016 where the focus is cuisine from the Pacific Rim regions including the U.S. West Coast, Hawaii, and East Asia. Executive Chef Howard McCall is the talent in the kitchen.

We had brunch at Miro Kitchen on November 13, 2016, a beautiful sunny Sunday, where the light streamed through the wall of the windows into the attractive and intimate space. The design is modern with aesthetic clean lines, the well-stocked 10-seat bar features reclaimed wood, pickled wood graces one wall, and niches behind the bar incorporate Asian elements including a variety of attractive and colorful tea pots, elephants, and lanterns. A banana plant in a large white pot, a palm tree, and a money plant, along with black and white prints of surf scenes add ambience, and the long wood wrap around banquette that runs the length of the restaurant creates intimate seating to flank bare wood tables with metal chairs.

Executive Chef Howard McCall, the talent in the kitchen, is a graduate of the prestigious Johnson & Wales Culinary School in Rhode Island, and honed his craft working at Connecticut restaurants, Washington Prime in SoNo (South Norwalk), and Mitchell's Fish Market in Stamford, as well as owned his own restaurant before joining Miro Kitchen. The menu has many Vegan, Gluten Free, and Dairy Free options to appeal to diverse clientele, in addition to offering a kid's menu and a pre-fixe menu.

The well-stocked bar features a series of infusions in large glass jars used for signature cocktails including toasted coconut infused vodka, vanilla bean infused vodka, and Thai chili infused vodka. Although the restaurant is small in stature it looms large in creativity.

Sunday Brunch is a celebration that usually begins with brunch cocktails, which of course, we sampled. We began with the Asian Pear Sake Sangria which was an inspiration made with Mizu Shochu Saga Barley, 35% abv, made with barley, black Koji rice and pure water, Asian pear cider, simple syrup, topped with club soda, and garnished with a slice of lemon, lime, and orange. The result was a very refreshing and delicious way to start our dining experience at Miro Kitchen.

As a first course, we had two of the tacos on the menu, the Breakfast Taco made with cheese, egg, and pork belly, presented on a soft taco with aioli, and the Crispy Cauliflower Taco with mango salsa made with diced mango, cucumber, tomatoes, and red onions, drizzled with poppy seed dressing, and garnished with chopped scallions, which was vegan and dairy free. Both tacos were beautifully presented with a lovely mélange of spices, flavors, and textures to wake up our appetites.

We continued with the Short Rib Benedict which was a poached egg on a toasted English muffin with gochujang hollandaise, and the Shrimp + Crab Benedict (minus the poached egg) with gochujang hollandaise. Gochujang is a spicy fermented Korean sauce made from red chilies, glutinous rice, fermented soy beans, and salt, which gave the "Benedicts" a delicious kick.

Our next pairing was the Chicken + Waffle Sandwich made with red velvet waffles and crispy chicken, with ube jam (made from Filipino purple sweet potatoes), with spicy maple glaze, and topped with a sunny side up egg, with their spicy Bloody Mary garnished with three colossal olives, a lemon wedge, and sprinkled with black volcanic salt and flake sea salt. The combination of sweet (waffles and chicken), and savory and spicy (Bloody Mary), was an excellent yin-yang pairing.

Deliciously working our way through the menu, we sampled the Crispy Cauliflower bowl with cauliflower and crispy potato which had an unexpected, yet very delectable sweetness; the Breakfast Burrito made with Korean BBQ Pulled Chicken, with scrambled egg, cheddar cheese, potato hash, and pico de gallo, and the Crispy Shrimp + Grits made with coconut shrimp, white cheese grits, with a drizzle of hot oil, paired with a Mimosa.

Although we did not think that we could manage another forkful of food, when we saw the Banana Fosters French Toast made with candied banana, coconut whipped cream, and chocolate maple syrup, we had to sample this "wow" of a presentation, which followed through on the palate. As a final parting taste, we had a scoop of the ube ice cream, which was deliciously unique.
