Sometimes you just need to go somewhere that you know you can count on. It happens every few months. I simply have to have salted baked squid from Great New York Noodletown. It's not greasy, has a delicate crunch and the squid melts in your mouth. They take the salt right to the edge, where it always should be! What also makes it are the jalapeño peppers piled on top, sliced so paper thin that the heat index is perfection. How can something be so comforting and refreshing at the same time? The waiters are the greatest. All business, they leave you alone and let you do what you're there to do. Which is to savor the moment, eating each piece of squid as if it's your last. None of this "how are we doing, our fish are sourced from blah blah blah." So simple, so straightforward, yet unique in its execution. Salted baked squid. I even love the way it sounds.
