20 Brix - but is it worth the bones?

A coworker recommended 20 Brix to me a while back and I finally had the chance to check it out. 20 Brix is on the main drag in Old Milford.

Very cute setting...

Nice sized wine shop...

They also have a nice gift selection - a bit odd in a restaurant but it's a "shop" kind of neighborhood.

Scott got this salad - he wasn't that excited about it. It really was PLAIN!

The "Nice" Salad
Grilled Potato Bread, Haricot Verts, Kalamata Olives, Tomato, Baby Lettuce, French Feta Vinaigrette

This was delicious! So much flavor and lots of good stuff! I am not a huge feta fan but I loved this!

Scott got a pizza (obviously) - I think it was a bacon & basil pesto? I'm pretty sure it was a special or it's at least not on the online menu. It was really really great! The crust was crispy yet flavorful and the toppings were perfect. I had one piece and wished I had eaten 3 more!

Local Tomato and Smoky Pepper Soup
Old Bay Crostine, Lump Crab Meat, Rouille

This was AMAZING! I decided to go for salad and soup - and let me tell you this soup rocked the house. I'm not much on tomato soup but WOW this was delicious! The addition of the pepper helped. And then - check out that pile of crab!!!!! It was delicious...and you'll see some saucy stuff - just added to it. It was fantastic! Great pairing with the salad as well.

Overall 20 Brix was a delightful choice - the food was excellent. The patio outside was perfect and the staff was very knowledgeable. They even told me when my car was about to get towed!

If you're in Milford I would DEFINITELY recommend 20 Brix!

  1. Wow, two very different salads. Are you sure they forgot to finish the first one? They seemed to simply plop some arugula on a plate and that was about it. "Give them a handful of arugula and they're lucky to get that." the line cook called out. Really, this is a newer trend in salads, I have noticed, toward a minimalist approach that lets a good EVOO, Pamesiano Reggiano, and grilled lemon stand up more on their own against the more bitter like greens. Obviously quality and freshness are key here. They, probably, should have a policy not to serve the "nice" salad at the same table?

    The pizza looks so good. I like the thin crust and the bacon pesto is an interesting combo. Mmm.

    The soup has inspired me to make a version like it. I was thinking a buttered cod instead of the crab with Gouda. Crab is so expensive, but, probably way better than Cod. I would like to add a smoked melange of pepper to add tang.

    They do have a gift shop at The Ox Yoke Inn that this shop reminds me of.

    Great photos along with a, as usual, well styled critique.

  2. Almost towed?
    Between that and the wrong way on Main run in with the cops, have you considered a bicycle?

  3. They were doing construction and I didn't notice the sign - well didn't notice might not be the right term. Ignored might be better.
