The Doorman

New York clam bars, like Randazzo's of Sheepshead Bay, Nathan's Famous of Coney Island, or Peters of Island Park, are traditionally stripped-down outfits for enjoying cheap bivalves on the half-shell. Then there is ZZ's Clam Bar in Manhattan's Greenwich Village. It is among our most expensive restaurants. It's all brought to us by the Major Food Group, the team that brought us elevated riffs on Italian-American fare at Parm, Torrisi and Carbone. ZZ's, however, has less to do with the oregano-heavy seafood shacks of Long Island's South Shore than it does with a high-end raw fish spot like Bar Masa.
