Milant Is Back As Melange Green & Gourmet

Melange formerly known as Milant

Milant is back! Sure, we’ve said it before, but the small deli is really back this time under a new name, Melange (on 39th btw. 3rd+Lex). One of the original owner’s son runs the business now so ownership stayed in the family. Apparently, dad’s still helping out and cooking, so the name change probably has more to do with distancing themselves from the issues that plagued their former self than any meaningful changes. The great news? The place is spotless and they’ve retained all of the awesome sandwiches plus added a whole bunch of new ones along with breakfast, a salad station, and hot bar.

Check out their sweet lunch specials and sandwich menu after the jump…

The “with soup” situation may only apply to the lunch specials, but it looks like Milant’s #13 AKA Zach’s old standby has returned! (It’s H5 now.) For only $5.99 for both sandwich and soup, this makes the combo even cheaper than it was in 2007!?
