Octopus Salami at Rosemary's, Dish #90
Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in each day (weekends too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.
Octopus salami is one of the delights of Rosemary's menu, a compact collection of octopus tentacles fused with engaging goo into slices resembling salami. The dish comes decorated with fresh basil (from the roof) and a minced giardineira--a tart Sicilian vegetable pickle. Lots going on in this dish, and all of it to the good.
