Slow service, excellent food by MFM
On a busy Friday night we scored a walk in table but there was a significant wait for drinks, bread and placing an order and huge lags between courses. However, we had a great seat and the food was wonderful.
They bring slices of crusty sourdough that is soft and chewy in the middle along with whole cloves of roasted garlic and butter – so good. For a starter we had the raw bar sampler that comes with 4 oysters, little necks, mussels, scallops, crab claws and 2 huge shrimp along with citrus crab salad and an incredible Asian flavored calamari salad. I will go back for that alone.
Next we shared a chopped radicchio salad that had blue cheese, cranberries and pumpkin seeds and was served with a warm roasted pear that was stuffed with blue cheese. A perfect combination of hot and cold, sweet and sour, soft and crunchy…
Our entree was also shared – the waiter recommended halibut piccata. The fish was lightly breaded and delicious, served over mashed potatoes with roasted cauliflower and broccolini. The sauce was a sort of lemony beurre blanc. It was very good and a great size for sharing.
