M Wood Fired Oven came out of a desire of owner Alex Mchaikhi to offer his city and his neighborhood a comfortable place for family and friends to gather and feast, or simply to gather and imbibe. Just next to sister restaurant ASH American Fare, M offers a cozy environment to dine on thoughtfully prepared casual food.
Weather permitting, outdoor dining is available as well.
MEET THE OWNER
“If you don’t love what you do, it shows.”
Having worked and traveled all over the world, he knows it shows in any country, in any language. He speaks five languages: Arabic, French, Italian, German and English. He has worked in the hotel/restaurant industry in his native Tunisia, Lake Como Italy, New York City, Boston, Massachusetts and finally, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Alex was born in Tunisia, North Africa, the youngest of five children. He attended Tunisia’s University of Hotel Management, majoring in Hotel Restaurant Management.
After stints at luxury hotels in Tunisia and Italy, Alex moved to New York City, to work at La Reserve, a fine French restaurant. He then ventured west to Ohio, serving as maitre’d at Orchids Restaurant at the Omni Netherland Plaza, helping gain the restaurant four stars in the Mobile Guide for the first time. A trip back east took him to Boston, as maitre’d at the Boston Harbor.
Coming back to the Midwest, Alex became the General Manager of one of Ohio’s finest restaurants, L’Auberge, in Dayton, which also earned four stars in the Mobile Guide. He kept that post until 2004, when he was thrilled to return as Director of Restaurants at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.
In early 2006, Alex bought Cumin restaurant, and converted it to ASH American Fare in 2014 . In 2012, he opened M Wood Fired Oven. He, inspired by a true love of the business, looks forward to sharing ASH and M with Cincinnati.
Alex lives in Cincinnati with his wife, Deborah.
