Progressive Mizestro Restaurant in Brecksville to Close

Chef Matt Mize recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of his playful Brecksville bistro Mizestro (8918 Brecksville Rd., 440-792-4679,, but it looks as though he’s reached the end of the line. Via email, the chef announced that he would be closing up shop and selling the business.

For fans of the chef’s tricks and treats, which included levitating food with an electromagnet, whipping up sorbet tableside in cryogenic bowls, and pouring glow-in-the-dark cocktails, there at least is satisfaction in the prospect of a future endeavor.

“Today, we’re announcing that after 16 months of introducing people to the art of small plates and the technique of molecular gastronomy, we have decided to sell Mizestro and take a few months off,” he wrote. “There were many reasons for the difficult decision to sell and it wasn’t made without great thought and sadness. We plan to enjoy the summer with family and friends and to allow Chef Mize to study the newest and latest trends in the restaurant industry. We are extremely focused on opening our next spot hopefully in the very near future. Be excited for us and look forward to Chef’s wizardry and dynamic twists on even bigger and better things!”

We’ll keep you updated on the new owners’ plans for the space.
