[VIDEO] Looking for an Octopus in New York City? We Got a Guy

Octopus Garden is an established seafood market in Bensonhurst which specializes in Octopi used for cooking in Italian, Mediterranean, and Asian cuisines. In this video from Bon Appètit's I Got a Guy series, meet owner Vinnie Cutrone as he shows you around the market, and shows how one is prepared Italian style.

Vinnie Cutrone sells tenderized octopus at his seafood market Octopus Garden in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. The holiday season is the busiest for Octopus Garden as the neighborhood's Italian-Americans shop for the annual Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. Cutrone shows Bon Appétit how to tenderize octopus, how to cook octopus, and explains why his Spanish octopus is just as good as - if not better than - lobster.
