  1. I like the grilled octopus at Uncle Nicks.

    1. I had grilled octopus in a vinagraitte at Thalassa in Tribeca that was to die for!!

      1. Grilled baby octopus appetizer at Gramercy Tavern is wonderful. Have that and a drink at the bar. Not too expensive.

        1. I love the grilled calamari at Avra, the "simply grilled to perfection" one, although the stuffed one is good too but a different thing all together.

          1. Second Gramercy Tavern. Also, estiatorio milos.
