Went to mk the other night, kind of an anniversary celebration, kind of just a night out.

To begin the service was perfect, seated immediately, two waiters. No complaints. They even wrote happy anniversary in chocolate on both of our desserts.

Here is the reason to go to mk right now. They have a special papperdelle with morels. It is rich and buttery which may turn some away, but it is almost an exact replica of my favorite dish at Babbo in NYC. Amazing, I had it for my appetizer and my wife had it for her main course. (though I can’t recommend it for the main course as it is a big heavy).

My wife had the salad to start, nothing special but nice and fresh.

For my entree I had whitefish with lobster in a fennel sauce. I’m not a huge fan of fennel, and I can’t really say this was the best entrée ever, but it was good.

Dessert consisted the One Banana, Two Banana which was delicious and my wife had the Rhubarbarella for the second time in two weeks, but it was fantastic too. Though it was a lot of rhubarb and if you aren’t crazy about rhubarb go with something else.

The wine with it all was a basic mk Chardonnay which was really crisp, and I have to recommend it despite its lack of name.

Overall not expensive, nice night out, BUT the point of this whole post is only a recommendation for the paperdelle.
