When I lived in Philadelphia for grad school, one of my biggest regrets was not hitting up Davio’s (even though I lived two blocks away). I had heard great things about this Italian Steakhouse so when they invited me to a special media dinner to celebrate their newest location that opened just last November by Grand Central – I just had to check it out.

For my starter, I had the Grilled Baby Octopus served with Pancetta, Corona Beans, Frisée, and a Citron Vinaigrette. The lil’ baby octopi were almost too cute to eat but I was hungry – so off with their heads! They were tender and lacked the rubbery consistency usually found when not prepared correctly. The crispy yet slightly sweet Pancetta also added good flavor to the dish.
