Time Out says

New England transplants will be happy to know they don’t have to go any further than Bushwick to get authentic chowder. Cape House, a clam shack and bar, offers all the classics and a few new options. Traditionalists might go for the whole belly clams, scallops or clam strips, available on a roll or as a platter ($8–$25), or the creamy chowder ($5 for a small, $9 for a large). Not a seafood person? Try a Worcester-style hot dog with chili ($5) or the fried chicken sandwich ($11). If you’re in the mood for a more formal meal, order the negroni-braised octopus with herb salad ($20) or the baked haddock with dill cream sauce ($23). And what New Englander would eat clam strips without an ice cold beer? There’s Narragansett ($3), Cape House Lager ($4) and Cisco Whale’s Tale Pale Ale ($6). You can also order wine and cocktails like the appropriately named The Ancient Mariner with rum, grapefruit and lime ($10).
