When it comes to birthdays with my sister and her husband, Mr. M&P and I split up the year. The spring/summer is focused on the boys. The winter is for the girls. This past birthday celebration (the boys), we wanted to try something new. Lucky for us, Chef Bobby Flay had just opened a new restaurant in NYC. It's been a long time since he's opened up a new restaurant and we were excited to try all the new influences he's been playing around with.
The Roasted Octopus ($17) with sour orange, bacon, and oregano was also pretty good. A tender piece of tentacle dressed lightly. My only complaint would be that the portion size was pretty small.
