What better way to start my summer vacation than a walk down Delaware Avenue? It was the perfect evening for a stroll (in between rain showers) and I was happy to see so many people out and about. Don't the tables in front of Pizzalo look good? I need to give their pizza another shot soon, but, on this particular night I had my sites set on New World Bistro...
new menu and the grilled baby octopus were absolutely calling my name. Look at them! I took some notes while I was eating them: "Holy smoky octopus! Delicious. Tender. Gorgeously presented like stars on little bread ovals perfectly toasted (grilled?) to perfection. Citrusy jam - yum." Yep, that pretty much summed things up for me.
I'm kind of a fool for fried squid and these were perfect - not greasy and the ideal balance of spicy and sweet. Perfect snack food with a glass of wine at the bar. Kevin recommended the Millbrook Tocai Friulano and it was a lovely match for my seafood items - good tip! How lucky are we in the Delso to have a wonderful neighborhood joint like this?
I hit up Emack and Bolio's on my way home and thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside with my hot fudge sundae watching my neighborhood settling into summer. Life is good - don't forget to taste it.
