Esca, almost didn't go

There have been such mixed reviews but we decided to try it.
No reservation,just walked in.
The Place was packed, but they were so gracious and offered to serve Dinner at the Bar.
We ordered the Razorback Clams from the Raw Bar.
So fresh and tasty.
Grilled Calamari, and Oysters. Both excellent
Me House made Squid Ink Pasta with Cuttlerfish Scallions and Chili Pepper.
First time I encountered this dish was in Palermo, and we went back to the Restaurant again for the same dish.
Every time I have ordered it since at Home it had a slightly bitter aftertaste.
This dish was perfect.
But the outstanding dish was the
Monkfish Liver with Concord Grapes.
It was memorable.
Tasted like Fois Gras, but ever creamier.
When I come to N.Y. my food porn is per se's Oysters and Pearls.
I can now add Escas Monkfish Liver to the list.
Never got to the Mains..
next time possibly.
Shared a Marscapone Cheesecake for Dessert also very good.
We left very happy.
