First Look: Mi Piaci Preston Center

mi24by Steven Doyle      photos by Robert Bostick

Yesterday we announced that Mi Piaci opened their doors in Park Cities near Northwest Highway on Preston Road in the former restaurant Ocho space. The menu is vey similar, but not all the dishes made it up north. From chef Elmer Pineda we find many of our house-made pasta favorites, plus a few new surprises. We stopped in yesterday and was able to check out what the digs looked like (sleek, elegant and understated), and sample much of the cuisine for your food porn pleasure.   

mi1Although the space is super convenient with street valet and some parking, as well as garage access and self parking which is accessed from the south side of the building, some local residents voice concern about the location. We feel that Mi Piaci will break that concern and drive guests in to sample the upscale cuisine at an extremely affordable price point.

Check out the beautiful photography from Robert Bostick, and if you smell crab and squid pasta on his breath today, it is merely the leftovers.  Check out the menus here: Mi Piaci Lunch and Mi Piaci Dinner.
