Best Extraordinary Octopod (2008)


The two-decade-old midtown Italian with an Istrian twist has remained popular based on its near-perfect pastas, and its connections with restaurateurs Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali. But on a recent visit to FELIDIA, I was knocked out by a simple octopus salad, tender white swatches bedded on a row of creamy potatoes, punctuated by sweet grape tomatoes and black olives wrinkled like a thumb too long in the bathtub.
