Conjuring images of watery adventures and denizens of the deep, the octopus has long carried with it a sense of mystery. Perhaps due to its fascinating appearance, sharp intellect or connotation with seafaring tales, the tentacled creature is known by many only by reputation—not by taste. But much like the valiant mariners of the past, Element has tamed the beast, bringing to shore a slice of the sea for those daring enough to try it.

One of many sharable small plates on the Element menu, the grilled octopus is the breakout star. Nestled atop a mound of frisee greens, chilies and green tomato, the succulent cephalopod is tender and smokey from the grill. A drizzle of shallot vinaigrette adds just the right about of kick to the already flavorful starter. Enjoyed alone or with friends, Element’s grilled octopus is sure to impress.
