Why are all wait staff in NYC so damn awesome at their jobs? Yeah, yeah, tips and all that, but seriously - when our waitress at Sauce took us through the daily specials, I was hanging on every word. My stomach was audibly rumbling at her delicious descriptions. Now that's the kind of woman you want on your team.
This was the best octopus I have ever had. Succulent and juicy, cooked to perfection and full of flavour - I'm still thinking about it three meals later.
The antipasti was amazing, the pasta warm and comforting; perfect for a bitterly cold -12C night.
In retrospect I wish I'd ordered just a bunch of antipasti dishes, they were so good - but there's always next time.
