Milu, a casual Chinese restaurant in NoMad, is taking its show on the road with a stop in Brooklyn where it just opened its second location at 235 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg. Showcasing a range of ingredients and flavors from China, Milu meshes Asian cuisine with American culture. Dishes here are served family-style and meant for sharing.

Milu is pronounced “mee-loo”, meaning “rice road” in Chinese. Chef Connie Chung, formerly of Make It Nice, is preparing classic dishes such as Yunnan Brisket, Mandarin Duck, Soy Roasted Chicken, Ginger Scallion Salmon, and Sichuan Spiced Cauliflower. Visitors will also find handmade wontons and sides of Charred Broccoli and Tofu Seaweed Salad. Sweets bring Pineapple Buns and Egg Tart Soft Serve.

The Williamsburg outpost also offers a full liquor license with bottled cocktails like the Shochu Bamboo (golden barley soju, vermouth, bitters), Hong Kong Heat (tequila, mezcal, tiensin chilies, pineapple), and Cloud Chaser (Bourbon, aged rum, ginger, lime).

Indoor and outdoor dining is available at the Williamsburg location inspired from historic “cha chaan tang” (Hong Kong style cafes) with original art from Taiwanese American artist Jonathan Jay Lee that capture the landscape and dining culture of Hong Kong. The outdoor space also has a retractable roof.
