A Clam Joint from the Market Table Folks
This place is called The Clam
, and that’s exactly what it’s all about. It’s opening tonight
and what you need to know is this:
It’s from the chef behind Market Table.
That’s that jovial place down the street
from this. With a little help from his partner, Joey Campanaro (of Little Owl), he’s bringing some more
quality seafood into your life.
Yes, it’s good for your next date.
Sconce light, white tablecloths and exposed brick
are the name of the game here. Secure the two-top next to the window looking out onto Leroy, and just let it
happen. (Bonus points if it’s snowing.)
Believe it or not, they’re working all kinds of magic with clams.
On the half shell.
Baked and stuffed with pancetta. Adorning a bowl of spaghetti with chili peppers. They really put your
favorite mollusk to work here.
That reminds us: you can laugh at the name now.
