The heart is the central structure that houses our ovens, kitchen and bar. It was designed with a heart in mind because it feeds the space and holds all the vital functions. As the place of emotions, it takes center stage and is remarkable from every seat. It brings friends together.
OUR OVEN MASTERPIECES
Neapolitan pizza is art. So are the ovens that bake it. The wood-fired oven is a key element in the baking of Neapolitan Pizza. The moisture and aroma of the wood allows the crust to maintain its internal softness, as well as ensuring large bubbles inside the dough, and the typical aroma of cooked bread. All of these are hallmarks of true Neapolitan Pizza. Our two ovens were handbuilt by a third-generation family company in Naples. Each oven complied to the most detailed constructive rules and lengthy process. Our ovens are unique because they're made exclusively by hand, from raw materials like sand and stone harvested in Naples. They even weigh differently – our right oven weighs 8020 pounds, and our left oven weighs 7200 pounds. They both burn at the dome at about 1000º Fahrenheit, the temperature needed to bake Neapolitan Pizza to perfection in just 90 seconds.
Trees are regarded as a symbol of tradition and a witness of eras gone by. They are bearers of long forgotten times and legacies. Here at MidiCi, we value tradition and cherish the stories behind them. Our tree is here to take in new times and new stories. With its body rooted in earth and a crown reaching for the sky, our tree is real. It is authentic. It not only breaths, but it experiences sensitivity, growth, and movement. This tree is our friend, and as such, we nurture its well-being with care and attention.
Everyday. Looking at a tree gives a feeling of serenity, peace and tranquility. It provides a great sense of escape from the humdrum, and makes us more in tune with our surroundings and the people around us. Naturally, it brings friends together.
