The Mitchell Block
Formerly known as Tre Visi, the Mitchell Block is under new management. It seems to have dropped it’s air of pretension – I remember going there and for some reason our choice of tap water over sparkling or flat bottled mineral water was met with small sniff of distain. That’s ok, it just meant I never went back.
I started following The Mitchell Block on instagram and couldn’t stop obsessing over their delicious looking food. We knew we had to order the bison carpacio. It came with “beef crackers” and delicious salty capers. One thing that hasn’t changed since their Tre Visi days is their bread. I remember it being so delicious the first time we went that we asked for seconds, and this time was no different. The dots of balsamic on top of the butter were perfect. I was a little disappointed at the entree selection. I had hoped they would be a little more creative like the bison carpaccio, but it’s understandable if they’re attempting a balancing act of retaining their previous opera-going customers and trying to attract the new ones.
I can say I will definitely be going back to try their Fisherman’s punch. A giant fishbowl of alcoholic punch that we were told tastes like peach ice tea served in their lounge.
