Legendary Midwood pizzeria Di Fara brings back meatballs, chicken Parm and pastas at a nearby takeout nook. In 2005, owner Dom De Marco axed the Italian staples to concentrate on flipping pies, but his sons and daughters are reintroducing some of the long-dormant dishes at a spin-off just down the street. Youngest son Harry takes the culinary baton, dispatching meatball heroes, shrimp marinara and other old-school best-sellers in the cheery yellow space. Keep an eye out for zeppoles, tiramisu and other classic Italian desserts from daughter Margaret.

This newly-opened offshoot of DiFara Pizzeria offers Italian-American takeout specialties such as hot heroes and dinner plates with pasta. As much care is put into the food at MD Kitchen as the legendary pizza around the corner. The portions are generous and well-priced for what you get (heroes are $6.50 - $8.00, hot plates $8 to $13). MD Kitchen is a welcome addition to our avenue of falafel and shawarma (not that I don't love both). Recommended dishes: Shrimp parmigiana with pasta, eggplant parm hero.
