This Furniture Store Lets You Dine On Their Products Before Buying Them
When searching for the right furniture, we all attempt to simulate how it would actually be used. Still, it usually still requires some imagination and luck to get the right chair by just dipping your derriere in it for a few seconds. That's why Mio Food & Art is allowing you to really experience your furniture with food and art before you decide to purchase it. The brainchild of owner Antonio Marelli, Mio Food & Art is the metamorphosis of a premium furniture and decor store integrated with high-concept cuisine so both diners and furniture buyers can thoroughly enjoy their visit at the gallery-cum-diner at Thonglor.
“Most people aren’t aware that Mio Food & Art, besides the food itself, is a playground for those interested in shopping art pieces. Our patio chairs are imported showcases, and our chic-designed tables and lamps that you are surrounded are up for grabs. We look forward to welcoming all types of customers from serious foodies, art-enthusiasts, and especially instagrammers,” said Antonio Marelli.
The kitchen was introduced into the two-floored art and furniture showroom late last year with Antonio Facchinetti serving as the executive head chef. Antonio brings to the table decades of culinary experience, working in award-winning restaurants and five-star hotels in different corners of the world. With 50 seats, including 16 out on the balcony, the restaurant at Mio Food & Art serves traditional Italian menus such as cold cuts la Mora Romagnola with condiments and imported Burrata.
Dishes you must try when you're at Mio Food & Art include antipasti such as the grilled octopus with purple potatoes, smoked paprika and salsa verde or selection of organic cold cuts such as the salame mora in filzetta, salame mora nel gentile and prosciutto cotto. Another highlighted item is the locally raised Black Angus beef. End the meal with a satisfying dessert or two, which may be the fresh oven-baked apple cake with cream caramel or the uplifting tiramisu.
