717 south

Oh yeah, just look at the crispy little legs on this baby. You know how I feel about calamari fritti, it’s one of my island foods. As in, if I’m ever trapped on a desert island, this is a food I could not live without. I used to get calamari almost every week with my mom at the market in Italy, fried fresh and tossed with a bit of lemon juice into a paper bag. So simple, so good. 717 South cooked these leggy little guys up to perfection. They’re coated with a breadcrumb and Panko mixture, a little heavier than a normal batter but crunchy and delicious. The heavier breading really helps them keep their crunch with the sauce.Β  And oh, the spicy arrabbiata sauce!? Fuggettaboutit. Tangy with a little kick, molto buono.
