Not too long ago, I was looking at restaurants to try on Polk street with a friend. Pesce kept coming up with rave reviews. I thought it had to be good with over 500 reviews and 4 out of 5 stars. Sadly, that night would not be my first experience at Pesce. Rather, a few weeks later I got the chance with some great friends. I was blown away. We were all blown away and the reviews were definitely right on! In my mind, it really should have had 5 stars but you can’t always please everyone. Between the four us, we feasted like kings and queens. My only wish was that I had use of a better camera and not my iphone in a dark restaurant. Usually, my iphone takes amazing photos but in a dark restaurant it just doesn’t work as well.
We also learned that the style of the restaurant was tapas which means everyone shares everything which I adore. So most of the plates were small except our fish dishes which were meant as a whole meal.
Risotto Al Calamari: Squid ink risotto with calamari. (This picture doesn’t do this dish justice. It was simply AMAZING. This was my favorite dish of the night. I could have eaten a whole bowl to myself. )
Conclusion: Pesce is the cats meow! Go and try it for yourself.
