Brian Black, Owner of Mi Piaci, is Not Happy

brianblack
Mi Piaci closed on May 18, 2014. A sign posted on the front door noted the landlord had changed the locks on owner Brian Black for failure to pay rent. On May 14, the landlord announced the opening of Cucina Neighborhood Italian Restaurant in the same space. Mr. Black is fightin’ mad.

SUBJECT: Statement from Brian Black of the former Mi Piaci Cucina
 Mi Piaci Cucina Italiana in Park Cities was taken from me by my ex-lawyer/ ex- business partner. Through the use of unethical legal practices, my ex-business partner stole the restaurant from me.  I will be filing a lawsuit against her and others for their actions. A new restaurant is being opened in the same venue as the former Mi Piaci Cucina by my ex partner and the landlord. They are attempting to imitate Mi Piaci by using the same menu and staff from the former Mi Piaci Cucina.  The principles and family members that have been involved with the Mi Piaci brand since 1991 have NO affiliation to this new restaurant.  This malicious and unscrupulous act will be met with swift and just response.

We could not have done it without you and we wish all of our Mi Piaci friends and family only the best. As many of you know, we closed our doors last month due to circumstances beyond our control.
