Eat This: Barrel-Smoked Octopus and Bone Marrow


Published:

The aromatics from the wood-fired grill are reason enough to visit chef Javier Plascencia’s Finca Altozano in Valle de Guadalupe. Add in expansive views of the property’s vineyards, communal tables made for mingling, barrels as seating, and an unforgettable meal, and you have a bucolic dining experience in one of Baja’s most buzzed-about restaurants. In line with the eatery’s rustic atmosphere, the dishes at Finca Altozano are prepared with seasonal and local ingredients. A must-order: the barrel-smoked bone marrow and octopus dish. Rich and silky bone marrow is topped with char-grilled octopus and drizzled with a pleasantly briny citrus-based sauce. This little number deserves to be on your table every visit.
