First Look: MD Kitchen — A Di Fara Spinoff

Last month, a little counter shop in Midwood, Brooklyn opened its doors. If you didn’t know the history behind it, you might just think it was another run of mill sandwich and pasta shop. But it’s not. It is owned an operated by the DeMarco family of Di Fara fame.

You see, many years ago Di Fara used to serve much more than just pizza. In fact, this photo from Slice’s Adam Kuban shows that some 35 varieties of pasta and other entrees were available. But those items were nixed from the menu in the mid-aughts so that Dom DeMarco could focus his efforts on pizza. His daughter Maggie, who manages and runs the Di Fara operations, put in an outstanding request with their landlord: if the space around the corner ever became vacant they wanted dibs on it.

That finally happened earlier this year and the DeMarco family has used the space to bring back some old menu items. Available are six heroes, six pastas, three salads, four desserts, and an assortment of appetizers and entrees including chicken parm.

I was out at Di Fara for pizza purposes last month, so didn’t have an opportunity to try anything at MD Kitchen. Early Yelp reviews are encouraging.

Here is your first look at the take out only spot.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
