This is the black pasta to end all pastas. I first tried this Squid Ink Linguini Aglio Olio from The Daily Catch seven years ago and have been enamored with it since then. There’s homemade black linguini, ground calamari, olive oil, garlic, and anchovy. Each bite is slippery and garlicky, with chewy bits of ground squid. The entire dish is seasoned perfectly, finished with some bright parsley, and served right in the pan.
I’ve tried plenty of other delicious squid ink pasta (like this one from Domenica in New Orleans) and I’ve also developed my own recipes, but the this one from The Daily Catch remains my number one favorite. I would venture to say that for me, it’s the best pasta dish in town!
The Daily Catch serves Sicilian-style seafood and pasta, and they have three locations in Boston: North End, Brookline, and Seaport. I love going to the tiny but charming location in the North End, but I have to say that nothing beats the water and skyline views at the Seaport location.
