Gnocchi cacio e pepe. Porchetta-and-artichoke pizza. Eggplant parmesan. These are just a few of the must-try dishes on the menu at Mida, a newly opened restaurant in Newton. Inspired by the neighborhood cafes that pepper the streets in Italy, this new eatery intends to bridge the gap between food and community, and early reviews suggest that it’s succeeding.
In fact, Yelp reviewers praise Mida’s atmosphere almost as much as they applaud the modern Italian fare. Gleaming marble countertops echo the gray-and-white color palette of the zig-zag tiled floors, while modern chandeliers draw attention to the inlaid wood ceilings. The bright, open dining room is the ideal spot to meet some friends for an artisanal cocktail while enjoying the best flavors that Italy has to offer. Stop by and give it a try this weekend!
