New in CenPho: Mid City Kitchen

Chef Michael DeMaria's new Central Phoenix cafe, Mid City Kitchen, should have opened yesterday according to the announcement on its website, but today the Republic reports that it will be open for business tomorrow, Nov. 18.

Such is the way with restaurant openings, which are never a perfect science.

Located at 2929 N. Central Ave. (at Thomas), this spot will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a fast-casual setting.

For DeMaria -- who owns upscale Heirloom at DC Ranch and previously operated the AAA Four Diamond Award-winning Michael's at the Citadel for a decade, this is a change of pace, and frankly, a smart move.

With a light rail station right out front and hungry locals looking for affordable new indie eateries, Mid City opens at the right place and the right time.
