As usual, Tony does a pretty good job of getting off the beaten path, discovering tiny hole-in-the-wall places to chow down on deep-fried soft shell crabs, bacala and, of course, boiled calves head. (It sounds slightly less horrible when they call it "little animal face.")
We have to say we're pretty impressed with Tony's finds. We especially want to try that amazing-looking fish risotto at Da Romano, although considering he mentions it's Keith Richard's favorite resto, we wonder how secret it really is. Unknown or not, Bourdain graciously shares all the addresses on his website, so they're certainly not-so-secret anymore.
