If you’re going to name your place after a single item of food, you need to have mastered its cooking. Fortunately, Chef/co-owner Mike Price knows exactly how to get the best out of these versatile little tidbits of delight—whether they’re grilled in their shells with buttered crumbs or atop a pizza. It’s even worth ordering the clam dip here while you decide which other clam items to order.
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking, however, that this sweet little corner bistro is in any way gimmicky or one dimensional. In truth, there are plenty of equally appealing, non-clam-specific seafood dishes that also hit the spot, like roast halibut with gem lettuce or grilled scallops with anchovy aïoli. But lovers of the bivalve mollusk will love The Clam.- die MICHELIN-Tester
