Recommended Posts

A new seafood brasserie to occupy the former Country space, says Eater.

 

Now, let's discuss how we are going to pronounce the name.

 

miy-ay-seem-ay seems to be correct, but...

 

miy-e-seem

miy-e-sim-ay

mill-e-seem

mill-e-sim-ay

meal-sime (as in rhyme)

meal-ee-see-me

 

Just scraping the surface.

miy-e-seem

 

as with otto not having an oe, there's certainly no ay in there. depending on the accent either there's an e (nearly as in met) or there's nothing.

its French and derived from "Mille" Non? I vote something like mill-ay-zeem

 

it means vintage in the context of specifically referring to a year of production

 

ETA - in French there is an accent over the first E, And of course I'm butchering how to represent the phonemes at play here
