We ate at Esca on 10/31/07 and I ordered the Polipo (Grilled octopus with giant corona beans and preserved sorrento lemon) dish. The octopus was burned, and I mean burned black. It was tough and chewy. I was very disappointed especially since the waiter said that the dish is lovely, he said “Often times octopus is chewy and hard to eat, this one is so tender, you can cut it with a fork”. Sounded good to me, so I ordered it. It was nothing like described. The waiter noticed that I was having trouble cutting it so he came by and asked if he could bring me something else. I asked him if the chef could just redo it, less burned. He returned and told me that chef said that is how it is supposed to me. I’m sorry, but no food is supposed to be burned like that. It was awful. Since we had theater tickets and were under time constraints, the waiter brought me a fish sashimi dish instead. The taste was fine, nothing to write home about. But I got 3 small slices of fish which was WAY overpriced. All in all, the service (except for the comment from the chef) was great, the food….just OK and way overpriced for what you actually get. It’s a shame. We won’t be eating there again.
