  • Vinnie Cutrone sells tenderized octopus at his seafood market Octopus Garden in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. The holiday season is the busiest for Octopus Garden as the neighborhood's Italian-Americans shop for the annual Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve.

    Cutrone shows Bon Appétit how to tenderize octopus, how to cook octopus, and explains why his Spanish octopus is just as good as - if not better than - lobster.

    Vito Randazzo, chef and owner of Graziella's, praises Octopus Garden for the tenderness of the octopus he buys from them. Randazzo walks BA through the preparation process for serving the octopus and notes how rare a place like Octopus Garden is in today's marketplace.

    The octopus on the video seems fat compared to Korean octopus. Octopus is really good seafood. Boiling before grilling octopus seems really good way of cooking. In Korea, we boil octopus and eat live octopus while it moves.

    It's not hard to tenderise, marinate it in kiwi fruit 🥝 which breaks it down, rinse and cook

    I enjoy eating octopus especially Takoyaki in Japan but I hate seeing the tentacles especially baby octopus sometimes they eat them still with the muscles alive...also if I eat octopus I want to be blended with my other food so I don't have to see it...just taste it

    Octopuses are incredibly intelligent, and one of the smartest invertebrates in the world. Octopuses have displayed the ability to use both short and long term memory. Octopuses have a very complicated nervous system, two thirds of which is located in the nerve cords of it’s arms, which have limited functional autonomy.
