Joining the numerous Hell's Kitchen wine bars, Medi is an eclectic mélange of décor, cuisines, and ingredients. Through the wrought iron door, faux rustic tables abut white-painted brick walls. Conversation echoes off the white, subway-tiled open kitchen and neon-blue Venetian mirror behind the bar. The menu of charcuterie, tapas, and large plates also contains unexpected contrasts, such as risotto with wild mushrooms, Parmesan, and blueberries; a combination that exemplifies the restaurateurs' mission to experiment with different ingredients and cuisines found throughout the Mediterranean region.
