  • 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.

    Octopus, cuttlefish, squid...all delicious to me. Very underappreciated in the states that's for sure. Excellent episode. 👍

    Tosh T I only went to the beach for a little but where my mom's aunt lives it rains like 3 times a day and there are no other houses in sight and there are fruits everywhere

    If you order grilled octopus and it's rubbery, for god's sake send it back and ask them to prepare another order properly. Grilled octopus with a nice char on it is incredible.

    Implying that if they couldn't get it right the first time, they'll do it right when you ask them.

    I remember growing up in New York my neighborhood had a proper fish monger shop, a butcher shop, a real deli, et., that has been lost to a great extent and certainly now the prices on specialty shops are by necessity much higher than they were back then. A lost cultural way of life.

    They are still around but in the ethnic neighborhoods. The problem is that white people are too intimidated to visit.

    I love octopus, it's very mild and not really fishy at all. I lean just look at the size of the tentacles. That's a nice chunk of meat.
