The cat, iL Gatto. The octopus, polipo. Italian, done.
I kind of like the old Figlio. Casual dining menu, with pizza, pasta and pounds of steak. il Gatto isn't very far off from Figlio's, similar menu with more concentration on seafood. Hence, the Polipo. A completely new and upscale bar setting is a plus. I didn't like the creepy guys sitting at the old Figlio's bar. An oyster bar casual setting up front, with a more formal yet low-key dining room at the back. Same layout, different wine racks. See for yourself. The wine racks that is. But honestly, you and I both know better that wine should be stored somewhere else...
- Pasta Stratocasta with guitar-cut black linguini, crab and sea urchin. Woo, how could I not try that?!
- Alla Toscana with warm pesto and arugula (I need to blog about how much I LOVE arugula. No kidding.)
- Raspberry Cannoli with orange scented ricotta and orange ice cream
