Pete Mihajlov


Parasole Restaurant Holdings




Though his longtime partner Phil Roberts is far better known among foodies and the restaurant-going public, Pete Mihajlov is the partner best known in the local restaurant industry. Legendary for his generosity of spirit and expertise, it’s hard to find anyone of a certain era that doesn’t credit Mihajlov with an essential piece of advice or tutelage that built their success or got them through difficult first years. Mihajlov is closing in on four decades as Parasole’s behind-the-scenes man, but he’s built a reputation in the competitive and sometimes back-biting trade as one of the few people who’s always willing to pay his success forward.
