When the craving for a fried appetizer hits us, we love indulging in crispy calamari. And when we want an upscale take on that delicious dish, we like to venture out to Metropolitan Grill (2931 E. Battlefield, Springfield, 417-889-4951) to get our hands on the Sexy Rexy Fried Calamari. The calamari is perfectly fried and served with a zesty hot sauce and gorgonzola cheese. For $13, it’s huge enough to split with your dining companions. The calamari stays crunchy even though it is doused in hot sauce, and the big chunks of stinky, tangy gorgonzola cheese are the perfect pairing for the spicy, flavorful hot sauce.
