Master MC

M.C. Spiedo says not so fast, in a good way


Italians invented the Ferrari. And frenetic hand gestures while talking.

They're not exactly used to taking things slow.

But if there ever was a reason to pump the brakes, we found it: you and your date dining on slow-roasted suckling pig behind a curtain-enclosed private booth
Clear your schedule for a night at M.C. Spiedo, the new Italian date and dining spot at the Renaissance Waterfront Hotel where things move at Old World speed. 
The pace is set in the kitchen, where they know locally sourced duck, chicken, the aforementioned pig, and other succulent meats can't be rushed if they're to be roasted on a 40-inch steel spit in true 14th-century tradition. 
You won't mind, given the beautifully appointed dining room decor honors its Renaissance inspirations with columns of gold and blood-red cushions and curtains. And with an antipasti bar, hearth-cooked pizzas and tagliatelle bolognese, the Renaissance extends beyond the furnishings to the food itself.
Your date should appreciate a guy who likes to take it slow.
