Village Voice's Description

Littleneck is a tribute to Brooklyn’s love affair with the clam – though rest assured that none of the bivalves issue from the nearby Gowanus Canal. Made with the full fried clam, rather than fragments, the clam roll is the best in town, and there’s also no better lobster bisque, painted a pleasing shade of orange. The clam chowder is a little wacky with its shot of fresh dill, while the bucket of steamed clams is a perfectly doctrinaire take on a dish you don’t see too often anymore. The menu is short, but there’s an equally long list of specials every evening, depending on market and season. One evening, it was a generous serving of razor clams. As long as you don’t cut yourself on the shell, they’re great.

    Tasty oysters, little necks and everything else.

    Whole Belly Clam Roll - Gigantic whole belly clams are fried as expertly as at any New England clam shack - greaseless, tender, crisp, and hot stuffed into a buttered toasted top-split hot dog bun.

  • aaron l. on 11/05/11

    Go "off menu" and order the fried tuna rings.
