squid ink pasta
“The squid ink pasta at Upholstery Store is a seafood dish that is inspired by the beauty in juxtaposition and the balance of opposite flavors. In this dish, the black pasta and dark caviar contrast perfectly with the sashimi style scallops and the coconut cream white sauce at first glance, but the flavor is why this is a house specialty. The briny and salty elements of the ink and scallops appease seafood lovers, but the sweet finish of the coconut and smooth texture of the pasta provide a roller coaster of flavors throughout each bite. It's totally unique, and one of our many high seas inspired dishes here at 713 Washington Street.” -Leo Schneemann, partner of Upholstery Store

Korean Spicy Stir-Fried Squid
This squid dish is one of the most popular spicy dishes in Korean cuisine. The squid is cut into bite-sized pieces and stir-fried in a slightly sweet red chile sauce along with some vegetables. The sauce's main ingredients are gochujang (fermented chile pepper paste) and gochugaru (chile pepper flakes). For an authentic dish, there simply is no substitute for them. This recipe is certainly hot, but not fiery hot. Adjust the heat level to your taste. One way to reduce the spiciness is to use fewer fresh chile peppers (or none at all). Fresh chile peppers are called for in the classic versions of the dish, but the heat can be quite intense with certain varieties. This dish is perfect for those craving a tasty and spicy meal. The red chile sauce adds a burst of spicy flavor to the crisp vegetables and tender squid!

Popular in the coastal regions of Greece, Turkey and Lebanon, these tender baby squid, stuffed with fine-grained bulgur and flavoured with saffron and zahtar, are a delightful addition to any mezze table. Other versions include stuffing the squid with cheese and herbs and chargrilling them. To prepare the squid, hold the body sac in one hand and pull the head off with the other. Most of innards should come out with the head, but reach inside the sac with your fingers to remove any that remain in there. Whip out the transparent backbone, rinse the body sac inside and out, and pat it dry. Cut the tentacles just above the eyes, so that you have the top of the head and the tentacle joined together. Discard everything else.Mezze by Ghillie Basan, photography by Jan Baldwin, is published by Ryland Peters & Small.

We’d be hard-pressed to argue that burrata is not one of the most heavenly cheeses imaginable — and we’d say the same about this ravioli from New York City's Asellina with oven-dried tomatoes, oregano, and aged balsamic.

Jjambbong (Korean-Chinese Spicy Noodle Soup)
This spicy red noodle soup, jjambbong (also spelled jjamppong), is one of the most popular Korean-Chinese dishes, alongside another noodle dish called jajangmyeon (noodles in black bean sauce). Adapted for Korean taste by early Chinese immigrants to Korea, Korean-Chinese cuisine (although called Chinese by Koreans) is a huge part of Korean food culture. Korean-Chinese restaurants are everywhere in Korea. Every Korean especially loves the two noodle dishes, jajangmyeon and jjambbong. Oftentimes, Koreans have a hard time choosing between the two when eating out. You will find it surprisingly easy to make this popular bowl of noodle soup at home with easy-to-find ingredients. Restaurants use hand-pulled noodles (that are a tad chewy), but for home cooking you can find ready-made fresh noodles at Korean markets. Another option is to simply use spaghetti or linguini noodles. The soup is typically made with chicken stock for a rich flavor, but you can also use anchovy broth for a cleaner, lighter taste. This soup also incorporates pork, chile-infused oil, and various vegetables and seafood. The combination of all the natural ingredients creates a hearty bowl of soup that is packed with robust flavors. The spiciness will surely clear your sinuses!

This is an extremely satisfying dish, with richly flavored rice and browned calamari that will surprise even those who think they don't like squid. The same recipe can also be made with peeled shrimp instead of calamari.

Paella de Marisco
In order to prepare an authentic paella, there are seven essential ingredients: the paella pan, bomba rice (always), saffron, sofrito, extra-virgin olive oil, passion, and love. Sofrito is an important part of the paella.  It is a concentrate of vegetables that will bring flavor to the rice. You can add 4 quartered small artichoke hearts, or roasted red peppers, cut into strips, with the rice.   Some people use the pulp of 1 or 2 dried and soaked ñora peppers, instead of pimentón.
