Mi Pi: Boca West Country Club Pizza

6 / 8

mi_pi.jpgbocawestcountryclub.jpgThe newest Pizzeria to open in Boca Raton, FL isn’t in a shopping plaza or strip-mall.  It’s in an upscale country club, which is not usually a place I’d go for pizza.  And unfortunately, unless you’re a member or friends with a member, you can’t go to either.  But the pizza at My Pi isn’t an afterthought, or just something to put on the menu.  It is the central theme of the restaurant; from the name, to the giant pizza oven in the middle of the room.

Yes, that’s right, in the middle of the restaurant is a display kitchen where you can watch your pizza being prepared and baked right in front of your eyes on a Hickory Visual Pizza Oven.  Even though this could be one of the worst website I have seen recently (give us an email guys to help) check out the way it works.
