Slideshow SLIDESHOW: 16 Great Ways to Eat Squid and Octopus in NYC

Squid, octopus, and cuttlefish all belong to the class cephalopoda, which is noted for its bilateral symmetry, prominent head, and legs descended from primitive molluscan appendages.

We've rounded up 16 of our favorite dishes in New York that feature these creatures of the deep. From zesty calamari in Bensonhurst to live sannakji in Flushing, check them all out in our slideshow!
