I headed way over to East Cambridge this afternoon and was rewarded with fresh Octopus (it was cleaned on site) and blue tip Oysters from CO. Is fresh octopus as rare as I was lead to believe?
Not sure of the answer, but I did have fresh octopus at Erbaluce the other night, so it is available to some....those were flown in from Sicily I believe. Yummmm

I saw fresh BABY octo once there.
yes, it was "baby" .....not tiny, about the size of my hand (toddler? ahem, sorry). Served whole, just cleaned.
Gosh I think you just invented a term because they were in fact about the size of my hand.
Toddler-sized octo indeed.
I have seen ity bitty baby octo at japanese restos and at Jo Jo taipei locally. But I think they came already prepared...
We've moved the discussion on how to prepare Octopus to the Home Cooking board at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/665075
