Post Mortem Bestiarum

I couldn't get to a Korean restaurant for International Eat An Animal For PETA Day -- not enough time between operas -- and therefore missed out on getting the five major meat groups in one meal. With the help of a local blogger, I did manage the next best thing at an Italian restaurant on W. 73rd: carpaccio for the appetizer, a fried shrimp, squid, and zucchini platter for the entrée. Not the best-balanced meal, but it included three different phyla of the kingdom Animalia: Chordata (subphylum Vertebrata, order Mammalia), Arthropoda (subphylum Crustacea), and Mollusca (class Cephalopoda). I think I deserve extra credit since the bovine was raw.
