Four of us had a great meal last night: focaccia di Recco, big razor clams, grilled octopus, grilled lamb, tomahawk chop, grilled mushrooms, grilled broccoli di Cicco, butterscotch pudding, peanut butter pie.
The razor clams made me feel like I was in San Sebastian and the octopus like I was in Ensenada. Surprising for a place that's so meat-oriented.
The chop was a truly great piece of pork. Lamb was nicely done though a bit mild for my personal taste, especially in contrast with the pork, I go for the gamy / mutton flavor.
The rich, salty, barely-sweet pudding and pie (offered by the house as apology for our table not being ready on time) were a hit even with two of us who don't usually like desserts.
More food than we needed. Without the lamb it would have been just about right but one of my friends really wanted it.
