The Clam

Stop snickering at the name—this bivalve joint means business. At the corner spot—more of a tableclothed seafood palace than a casual clam shack—Market Table cohorts Joey Campanaro and Mike Price offer the eponymous slurper in a variety of modes: iced on the half shell; stuffed and baked with pancetta and lemon; and tossed with spaghetti in a chili-pepper-tomato sauce. Beyond mollusks, find seafood dishes like winter flounder with beluga lentils, bacon and pistachio. 420 Hudson St at Leroy St (212-242-7420)
