This "clam shack built by a beatnik," in previous co-owner Jimmy Bradley's words, has a lot more going for it than littlenecks, however delectable at $10 a half-dozen. A New Englandy front room, a cozier rear, and an adorable garden fill nightly with East Villagers stuck in the city but hungering for the shore. Most bottles of wine are priced a miraculous $15 over cost, and dessert (chef's choice) is on the house.Recommended Dishes
