Best Calamari 

Frondizi's

Restaurateur Jimmy Frantze and his talented chef, Linda Duerr, do the right thing by the lowly, slimy squid. For Frondizi's version of the Italian delicacy calamari fritti, Duerr dips the rings of tender squid into a light dusting of flour and cornmeal and fries them with batter-dipped clams and pencil-thin shards of fresh zucchini until they're golden and crispy. They come to the table in a paper hat, just as they would from a seafood stand in an Italian seaport. The resulting combination of textures and flavors is pure amore.
