Midwood’s famed Di Fara Pizzeria opened up a casual, take out spot last year that brought back some of the popular menu items that fans kept asking for. At MD Kitchen, dishes like eggplant parmigiana, chicken scallopini, specialty pastas including penne with spinach and semi-dried tomatoes and the famous Di Fara lasagna make for a delicious, home cooked and inexpensive meal (prices range from $2-13). “We cut everything off the menu [except pizza] about 10 years ago due to the high volume of the pizza requests,” said Margaret DeMarco, told the Brooklyn Paper last year. “We’d have a two hour wait for pizza, and there’d be the one person who just wanted an Italian ice, so we cut that too.” MD Kitchen has quickly become a fan favorite, consistently making it onto the “Best of” food lists in publications like New York Magazine, the Village Voice and Brooklyn Magazine since it opened on April 15, 2013.
Get ready to throw the party of your life because MD Kitchen now caters. That’s right. You can get Di Fara food delivered right to your door.
Half trays are priced from $30-40 and can feed anywhere from 7-10 people. What’s even more ideal is that MD offers trays of their starters and salads, too, so you can count on them for everything from soup to nuts, figuratively speaking. They’ve added so much to their menu that you can find something to please every family member, no matter what age. Plan it enough in advance and they will coordinate delivery.
When Di Fara announced their private party offerings, the emails poured in and dates booked up almost a year in advance. Now, they’re starting to offer smaller party reserved seating (instead of private events). So, it only made sense that MD Kitchen expanded their offerings, too. And since the space is too small for a private event, this is the next best thing. Better get your calendars ready, folks. Christening/communion season is right around the corner.
MD Kitchen is located at 1012 E 15th St, New York, NY 11230. To inquire about catering call (917) 789-9556.
