09-18 Aurora
We usually order the octopus appetizer at Aurora for some guaranteed goodness but it was simply not up to par today. Fortunately the "rare roasted, milk fed veal tenderloin" more than made up for any deficiencies the octopus bore. The close to raw, tender slices of veal were pleasantly accompanied by a tuna mayonnaise and occasional fried caper. Meanwhile the hamachi dish was unremarkable but a refreshing entry point into lunch, which ended on a positively mushy (read overcooked) gnocchi. Aside from the unusually prepared but very tasty veal, our first disappointing meal at Aurora since we started going last fall.
