A local specialty of Venice, Risotto Nero or Squid Ink Risotto is a glossy black rice-dish that pushes the diner away more often than it attracts at first glance. I remember my staff giving me the weird eye when the dish arrived. One spoon of the properly stewed rice and tender pieces of squid wrapped in the rich ink at Guy Grossi's Merchant will have you dreaming of Venice and returning back for more.
