In 2008, I reviewed Mi Lah Vegetarian, the two-floor BYOB that's still doing its meatless thing on the corner of 16th and Chancellor. The chef was Tyler Black, a Florida boy with a resume that iincluded the Four Seasons, Govinda's and Horizons. He left the restaurant and Philadelphia about a year in, but his grilled haloumi with green grapes, olive oil, Meyer lemon peel and parsley has stuck with me all these years. Apparently the feeling is mutual, per an out-of-the-blue email I got from Black today.
"...I would like to let you to know that your review of Mi Lah always stuck with me," he wrote. Shucks.
