Muntin Shows Promise

Excellent scallion pancakes, squid served whole and the Love Roll, a stand-out sushi roll are all reasons that Brian Freedman is rooting for Muntin on Spruce Street.

The entire cephalopod was sliced crosswise into a dozen or so sections, but presented as a whole creature, from the delta-wedge of its top all the way down to the messy tangle of its tentacles. The grilling lent a lovely bass note, excellent in opposition to the fruity, tingling chili glaze. And while the decision to grill it whole resulted in some uneven cooking—the head and tentacles were chewier than the beefy-tender body slices, but not enough to detract from the dish—the entire preparation was as successful as it was intriguing.
