It’s the South End restaurant we didn’t know we needed. Tucked inside a corner space that has already seen several restaurants come and go, Mida doesn’t so much cook Italian fare as take its cue from it. Chef/owner Douglass Williams has prioritized three things: ingredients, wine and hospitality. Dishes are made to share, from the lardo and crudo, to appetizers like spicy lamb ribs, to the handmade ricotta gnocchi and grilled sirloin cap. The wine list skews towards Northern Italian and French bottles and features lesser known producers. And, of course, classic Italian cocktails like the Negroni are expertly prepared.
