New York Magazine reports that Bar Masa at Columbus Circle is serving Fugu, the poisonous blowfish.

Fugu, or the flesh of the blowfish, can be deadly if prepared the wrong way, as anyone who has seen the Simpsons episode where Homer is given 24 hours to live after having it served to him by an inexperienced chef can attest.

Sushi chefs must apprentice for two to three years before they’re allowed to carve around the creature’s toxic liver. The bony pieces are dredged in potato starch, fried, and served with a little salt and some sudachi lime.

Oh my. Can anyone actually report of having tried this, um, delicacy?
