My husband and I checked out Fiorito again last night and, if possible, it's even better than before. The food is still amazingly low-priced for the quality and quantity of the food. Also, they now pair sides with the main courses rather than having eveyrthing a la carte - a good idea, I think. We had the amazing pulpo and a roasted portobello salad for our starters. The octopus, as before, was delicious - tender and slightly charred. The portobello salad, a new item, was also wonderful. It's filled with thick slices of perfectly cooked portobello mushrooms, fresh arugula, bell peppers, and blue cheese. A very lovely, filling salad. I then learned that they had two new empanadas on the menu (I think they plan to vary the fillings) - spinach and lamb. We had one of each and they were wonderful. We typically eat only fish and vegetables but lamb is my weakness and this was worth it -- the empanada dough was flaky and greaseless and it was stuffed with devine shredded lamb. The other was stuffed with fresh, just barely cooked spinach with just a touch of feta and nutmeg. I really liked it because it wasn't primarily cheese, which is what you often get. I will definitely indulge whenever they offer these and can't wait to see what else they come up with in the future. We both had the corvina a la plancha, perfectly done with a delicious bit of arugula and tomato escabeche, along with a side of wonderful, creamy mashed potatoes (my favorite comfort food). All was topped off with his wonderful flan with homemade dulce de leche.
We rarely go off the beach for dinner but Fiorito has changed this. This place is wonderful and will be a regular.
