What to Order:
Build a RAW seafood tower from seasonal French dayboat oysters, shrimp, clams, etc. Oct-Mar. Believe it or not, this is a starter to share before ordering from the main menu of a la carte small plates – perfect for picky eaters. Everyone can choose what they want. Think baked razor clams/toasted hazelnuts/herb butter, Scallops/brown butter/cauliflower puree, Octopus carpaccio/grapefruit pulp/anchovy, Smoked shrimp/roasted red pepper/white beans. The signature dessert? A maple syrup Chantilly cream tart.
What to Know Before You Go:
Perfect for pescatarians – but not for those who have RAW seafood/shellfish allergies. Clamato is a busy bar – not a romantic restaurant. Go for the social buzz, not intimacy.
Go early or go late, this is a no reservation, walk-in only bar. No matter when you arrive, you’ll find a wait. But that’s a great opportunity to wait it out with a drink at their wine shop across the street. Perfect for solo diners to groups of 5 people, not more.
