The Clam NYC Review

Spaghetti & clams at The Clam NYC

Our Rating

It is always extremely fun to dine with our friends Trevor and Robert with whom we went to Costa Rica for the New Year last year, and a meal at The Clam NYC was highly appropriate, as the seafood-centric menu brought us sweet memories of our amazing trip.

The space is small and simple, with one nice brick wall to one side and an open kitchen.

What we ate:

The Bread: at the start they bring the most addictive warm bread with butter! They are Parker House rolls which are similar to a a brioche and according to Claire, a Boston thing- traditional with New England clam chowder. But I think they are so good they shoudl be traditional with any and every meal!

Campechana coctel de camaron avocado, tortilla chips: despite the intimidating name….it was their version of a shrimp cocktail with smaller shrimps mixed in a deep tomato sauce. The chips were nice, but the sauce was slightly reminiscent of ketchup to me on the sauce, and I am not a huge fan of that.

Autumn salad market fruits & vegetables, green goddess, cheddar: a simple salad, tossed in light green goddess, topped with sharp, lovely cheddar. Simple and good but not a must order.

Brooklyn burrata & local grapes arugula, pickled red onions, almonds, baguette: burrata seems to be everywhere these days, but this one was creamy and absolutely delicious. It was served with a crunchy baguette and the grapes and arugula were a nice touch.

Yuzu marinated fluke crudo watermelon radish, ginger, chives: very thinly sliced fluke and radishes with a delicate dressing.

Local cauliflower vadouvan spiced yogurt, pickled currants: I am not sure what they mean by local as I don’t often see cauliflower growing on rooftops in NY but somehow they sourced it, and were even able to find three colour of it! They were perfectly cooked, and had an amazingly interesting flavour from the vadouvan (similar to curry powder).

Chili roasted brussels sprouts toasted peanuts: just like burrata, brussels sprouts seem to be on every menu but this was a new twist and uniquely good with the peanuts, and the nice kick from the chili.

Clam chowder bacon, leeks, oyster crackers: all the dishes we had until this point were tasty but not fantastic. I am not a clam chowder fan usually, as they tend to be quite heavy, but this green version was light yet creamy and absolutely delicious. The bacon just added a subtle porky flavour and the oyster crackers remain crunchy.

Spaghetti & clams: another dish we really enjoyed and you could instantly identify that the pasta was homemade and didn’t come from a box. The tomato sauce coated the spaghetti perfectly and the clams were large and plump.

Gingerbread ice cream sandwich mascarpone gelato, brown butter caramel: Trevor and I like gingerbread, while the other two were not as keen… more for us! We devoured it, but we had to ask for some extra caramel as the drizzle on the plate was just not enough…

86 proof chocolate icebox cake bourbon, chocolate wafers, espresso Chantilly: I used to make ice box cake when we lived in Vegas (cold desserts held great appeal) but I haven’t been able to find the appropriate wafers in London, and my refrigerator has limited space for a cake… Their version had bourbon, which always makes everything better (Stewart makes pancakes with bourbon maple sauce at home) and the chocolate was dark and rich and it all worked well together.

Gelato: we also went for some chocolate chip and bourbon pecan gelatos and they were both creamy and good but not outstanding.

In sum: charming cute place but on a future visit I would order more of the mains to test their other clam preparations as the few we ordered shined!
