scallops with sunchoke, citrus, and almond | graffiato | chinatown

Now that I’ve opened the floodgates on scallops, it is quickly becoming an all-around favorite. Since the retirement of my dear sweet corn angnolotti, I’ve been on the hunt for a new seasonal favorite at Graffiato (other than zeppoles because I can’t eat dessert for dinner on a regular basis!). I enjoyed the duck cannoli special earlier in the fall, but I think the scallops with sunchoke, “citrus,” and almonds takes the cake. The pork belly with cannellini beans and ham (photo not shown because it was in my belly before said photo could be taken) is also a strong contender. On this particular visit, I also had my first taste of wild boar:
