When high-end cocktail lounge Quill opened in the Design District in March, the Instagramming hordes fell all over themselves to get the perfect shot of a food item on Quill's small but noble food menu: the squid ink cones, a crunchy cone colored with squid ink, filled with big eye tuna and topped with scallions and roe.
Gimmicky? Maybe. But the cones are also a delightful little bite, the tuna fresh, the roe abundant and all of it balanced by a little dollop of cream in the bottom of the bottom of the cone. As bar snacks go, you'd be hard-pressed to go wrong with these little fellas, which run $4 a piece.
Chef John Tesar helped develop the original Quill menu, but soon after, he left Apheleia Restaurant Group altogether, and Joel Harrington took over at Quill and Oak. Harrington's first order of business was to launch a sushi and sake night which runs from 5 p.m. to close every Thursday at Quill.
