Confit market fish, olive oil, orange zest, garlic, calabrian chili — .10

very tasty, appetizer size

Salt & pepper calamari, leek, fresno chili, sweet chili sauce — .11

Clams & chorizo, saffron white wine broth — .13
The clams were excellent!

Grilled octopus salad, harissa aioli, chick peas, olives, piquillo pepper, frisee, sherry vinaigrette — .15

Grilled oysters, lime-chili butter, cilantro — .10
