Thanks to everyone who played Where Am I Eating? this week — and yes, this plate of grilled octopus is from Umberto’s Clam House, the Italian seafood hangout on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx.
Hungry guessed the restaurant correctly, making him or her the winner this week. Congratulations, Hungry, and please email me to choose your book.
The octopus at Umberto’s offers up an appealingly tender bite, zipped with garlic and roasted hot peppers. It makes an excellent snack before wandering up to the Bronx Zoo, or down the avenue in search of more gastronomic joys.
Tune in next week for another Where Am I Eating? contest …
