A quick Foodie Adventure post.
This Adventure takes is to
8001 5th Ave
(between 80th St & 81st St)
Brooklyn, NY 11209
served with marinara sauce
Crab Cakes 2
maryland lump crab cakes served with vegetable slaw
served with our olive oil
I remember this beer being pretty bitter
chorizo, sweet peppers, spanish olives, red wine, tomatoes
lobster, brandy tomato, garlic, cream
clams, andouille, tomatoes, garlic, red wine
served with shrimp, mussels and calamari
served with risotto and vegetables
We also ordered a half a dozen oysters and little neck clams but they took forever to come and I forgot to take pictures.
The only thing that was memorable was the Grilled Octopus. The service was pretty poor. Our waiter was nowhere to be seen most of the time and the restaurant itself didn't have to many tables and certainly it wasn't a busy day so I don't understand the lack of service. The paella was absolutely HORRIBLE! I can't even begin to believe how they can even call this paella. The mussels being the selling point of this restaurant was just okay. Nothing overly spectacular. However I would go back just for the Grilled Octopus. I can say it is one of the best I ever had!
