Fresh, grilled, whole Branzino with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Happiness!
Since I was seated at the bar, I had a front row seat to all the action in the kitchen. The grilled octopus looked amazing. I may have to come back for that. My overall observation: simple does best! Quality ingredients require nothing more than a generous drizzle of olive oil.
Verdict: AA+. Fresh, quality seafood with simple preparation. It just became my favorite eatery within Eataly.
