The interior space of mfk. is almost too small for the word "intimate" to describe, which opens tomorrow in Lakeview, at least in restaurant terms. The "seaside café" from owners Scott Worsham and Sari Zernich Worsham has the feeling of a private club set inside a studio apartment.
The Worshams pull off the seaside feel in the white-washed walls, white powder-coated metal chairs and bar stools, blonde wood table tops and cozy sea and beach paintings along the walls by Chicago artist John Santoro. You can see all 700 sq-feet of the space in the pictures below.
Also included below is executive chef Nick Lacasse's menu, which centers around seafood (prawn heads, razor clams, cobia collar), with a good dose of vegetables (Romano beans, spring peas) and a couple of land animals (chicken ballotine, ribeye cap). The restaurant, which does not take reservations, is open daily from noon until midnight, save for Mondays when they're not open for lunch, beginning tomorrow.
