Power Lunch at Trattoria il Mulino

The younger sib of the constantly expanding il Mulinos, which opened in September, is an industrial chic spot for younger clientele. Trattoria il Mulino, located in Gramercy, is a great spot to stop in for lunch on a much needed work break or on the weekend. Not only is the setting way more upscale than your typical lunch spot, but its food it obviously top notch like it’s big brothers’. You can indulge in il Mulino classic dishes or opt for their amazing prix fixe lunch, which is only $24 and includes a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. We dined at Trattoria il Mulino last week and were very impressed with their speediness and fresh dishes.

Before we ordered our meal, we enjoyed a choice of fresh bread and some small plates from the chef, including charcuterie and eggplant. This was a great way to start a meal and was very appetizing. We also enjoyed some of their specialty cocktails, which were very refreshing but not that boozy.

As for the lunch prix fixe, we started with the Ricotta Meatball, which was very tasty and a perfect precursor to my next dish. For the entree, we loved the Papperdelle with lobster and marinara. It was a true stand out dish and definitely one to remember. There were giant bites of fresh lobster and the saucy pasta was just right. If this dish is an indication of their other pastas, they are sure to all be winners.

After the carb loaded meal, we opted for the Seasonal Fruit to wind down. If you are looking for something light and healthy, then this is your best bet.

The prix fixe lunch at Trattoria il Mulino is a steal. If you want a quick, delightful and cheap lunch, make this place a priority.

Trattoria il Mulino is located at 36 E. 20th Street.
