Dinner last night at MFC. I could go on and on about it, but I'll try to keep it to a minimum. We had a special app. of fried sardines (greaseless, crunchy, superb) and a bowl of lobster knuckles (tender and sweet) to start, then the soft shell crabs. Soft shells were crisp, buttery perfection served atop a simple grill of onion, asparagus, and wonderfully sweet tomato.
The biggest surprise was dessert. We had the financier with blackberry compote, which was one of the best sweets I've had in recent memory - dense and moist with an accompanying mound of fruit that prompted obscene moaning.
The only downside I can see is the possibility of an extremely long wait, like in the 2hr range on busier nights. But despite the fact that they were being run ragged, service was very friendly.
