One million dollars -- that's what it cost to bring the new-and-improved M's Cafe to life. And it was worth every penny. M&D's barbecue flavor is particular and strong, layered with all those elements that make up the smell of the place on a good night. A naked piece of pork rib, sans sauce, is still dark and heavy with the tang of hickory and mesquite, sharp with black pepper, infused with a bittersweet saltiness all the way to the bone. The kitchen also does decent sides, great desserts and the city's best fried fish.
