Seafood Brodetto at IL Ritorno Downtown St. Pete

Everyday the type of seafood incorporated into this dish changes according to what is fresh. On this evening, the seafood was Clams, Mussels and charred Octopus accompanied by Preserved Tangerine, Celery Hearts and a dash of Chili. Poured table side over the dish was the sauce which Chef Dave describes as, "almost like a creamless, flourless chowder, but we've thickened it with some Sunchokes and Parsnips." This dish tasted just as delicious as it looks - a bit sweet and very savory. Very well balanced! Absolutely spectacular with the char grilled bread!
