I stopped by on a Friday night and enjoyed quite the feast. The menu is made for sharing, so I'd recommend a meal at mfk. with friends who love to share and who love seafood (although there are several non-seafood options). We started with the Manchego and speck croquettes which melted in your mouth. The roast garlic aioli was a nice sidekick for dipping.
|Manchego & Speck Croquettes, Roast Garlic Aioli|
|Ceviche, Poblano Guacamole, Squid Ink Tostada|
|Brussels Sprouts, Garlic, Shallot, Almond, Preserved Lemon|
|Tempura Eggplant, Spiced Honey, Cilantro, Flore de Sardo|
|Albondigas: Pork & Veal Meatballs, White Bean Puree, Almonds|
|"Fideous" Toasted Vermicelli, Asparagus, Bell Pepper, Poblano, Saffron|
|Manila Clams, Piperade, Citrus Butter, Sunflower Seeds|
Luckily for me (not so much for my wallet), mfk. is just down the street. I love the intimate atmosphere and the semi-condensed menu. There's nothing more overwhelming than a gigantic menu, but mfk. focuses on what it does best.
I'm giving mfk. 4.5 ghosts out of 5!
