Village Voice's Description

Sheepshead Bay's last remaining clam bar is, luckily, a paragon of its type: a fluorescently lit sea of Formica, where you can get them raw, fried, steamed, baked, chowdered, and sauced over pasta. The freshly shucked littlenecks are preferred over the cherrystones for their sweetness, and the New England chowder over the Manhattan for its briny depth of flavor. The fried clams are some of the best in town, accompanied by a powerful oregano-laced red sauce (pick hot or medium) that puts other dips to shame. Still, our favorite dish at this convivial working-class haven from the modern pretensions of the Bay is pasta with lobster sauce.

    The seafood here is locally sourced from a secret cove off the Verrazzano. Only "Old Starple," the Randazzo family fisherman, knows the coordinates.
