Fine calamari


May 16, 2007|By Sam Sessa | Sam Sessa,Sun reporter

Raw or steamed, squid has little appeal to us. But bread and fry it, and we're big fans. We ordered fried calamari from four area restaurants. Here's what turned up.


1606 Thames St., Baltimore -- 410-563-7600

Hours --5 p.m.-11 p.m. daily

Restaurant's estimate --10-15 minutes

Ready in --11 minutes

Presentation beat out substance with this order, $9.40. With pecorino cheese, garlic sauce, chopped tomatoes and lettuce, it looked the prettiest. But there was only about half as much calamari as in the other orders.
