Best Octopus Dish Los Angeles 2013 


RivaBella in West Hollywood offers an octopus salad so delicious that even someone wary of eating these eight-legged creatures might reconsider. Drawing inspiration from chef Gino Angelini's Northern Italian roots, the polipo con olive e patate is a roasted octopus salad with potatoes, Taggiasche olives, cherry tomatoes, celery slivers and salsa verde. Although manager Paul Chang might point out that his fellow native Koreans prefer live baby octopus, the magic of this dish is the warm and tender meat mixed with soft potatoes, resting on just the right amount of marinara sauce. 9201 Sunset Blvd., W. Hlywd. (310) 278-2060, —Jessica A. Koslow
