Mrs. Dorsey’s Kitchen, aka “MDK,” is a sandwich shop specializing in original grilled cheese sandwiches. Inspired by and named after the founder’s grandmother, MDK recreates the feeling of home by serving America’s favorite comfort food in a cozy homecoming environment.
MDK was founded at Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market in July 2011, and operated as a 7-day vendor from July 2012 through September 2012 when the market closed.
Since that time MDK has served its warm, familiar grilled cheese sandwiches to guests in various spaces throughout New York City:
Markets: Madison Square Eats, Brooklyn Night Bazaar, Columbus Circle Holiday Market
Festivals: NYC Brewer’s Choice, Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, AfroPunk Festival
MDK has also appeared in Chicago’s Dose Market and has been invited to the upcoming Windy City Wine Festival in September.
In addition to markets and festivals, MDK has provided corporate catering to organizations such as Shazam, Oxygen Network, and Spotify.
MDK is proudest of its service to the Brooklyn community, having provided grilled cheese sandwiches to the Coney Island neighborhood in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
