Anyone have good octopus in DC?

I have been to Zaytinya many times just for the Grilled Octopus Santorini. Is there another place that anyone could recommend that has good octopus?

  1. The last time I was at Komi they had an amazing pasta dish topped with the most perfectly cooked octopus I have ever had. Also, in Clarendon the Liberty Tavern does a wonderful octopus app. that features it a few different ways I believe.

    1. not in DC - but Cava (mezze) and Mykonos (Greek) in Rockville have great Octopus.

      1. I had a GREAT octopus salad at Sonoma on the Hill... i think its a seasonal thing though...

        1. I had great grilled baby octopus at Spezie a few weeks ago. It was one of their grilled fish of the day, so I imagine it might be seasonal.

          1. Al Crostino on U street has a good baby octopus salad starter. It is a special but seems to be on the menu every time I have been there.
