MC Kitchen is doing something more honest and genuine than that of other eateries with similar cuisine. In the roasted octopus dish, a large Spanish mollusk is quick-roasted in the Wood Stone-brand oven and then dressed copiously with Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil, fresh red pepper, and garlic. The tentacles are charred quickly, producing an aroma of smoke so potent its flavors resemble meat more than seafood. Pastas include fiocchi — purses of fresh pasta stuffed with fragrant roasted pear — which are laced with a white truffle cream as well as an ivory pool of melted cheeses. Drink options succeed with beer-based cocktails, in addition to a varied wine selection and a well-curated craft beer menu, including a focus on the Delaware-based brewery Dogfish Head.
