Downtown West Palm has a lot to offer. But one thing missing is a ‘fast-fine’ pizza joint. Not anymore. The California-based MidiCi chain (tagline “The Neapolitan Pizza Company”) opens Friday on Clematis Street.
“Pizza is not meant to be just eaten, but shared among friends and family,” said local franchise owner Pedro El Khaouli in a press release.
The restaurant promises to serve affordably-priced pizza in an upscale, fast-casual setting – MidiCi, in fact, prefers the term “fast-fine.”
MidiCi’s focal point is nicknamed “the heart” – that’s what the company calls its curved, centrally-placed open kitchens where pizza-makers assemble the pies.
The eatery serves traditional Neapolitan-style pizzas which are baked in 90 seconds in a wood-fired oven imported from Naples.
As part of the restaurant’s grand opening, all ‘guest friends’ – the term MidiCi uses to refer to customers – will receive a free Margherita pizza with the purchase of a Neapolitan pizza from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 26 through 28.
MidiCi, pronounced Mee-Dee-Chee, will have daily specials, and a happy hour Monday through Friday from 3 to 7 p.m.
