Gowanus: Littleneck’s Full Bell Ipswich Clam Roll
So this sandwich right here? Is the ocean in a buttered hot dog bun. Keep your lobster rolls (or, actually, give us your lobster rolls too, but, well, you know) it’s Littleneck’s clam roll that is our go-to sandwich in Gowanus. This sandwich is positively overflowing with briny, juicy, crispy fried clams, decadent tartar sauce, and shredded lettuce. It’s rich and satisfying and makes us think of the beach even though the closest body of water is the crème-de-menthe colored canal. Pause between bites of your clam roll for tastes of the pungent pickles (which, we’ve actually had friends take video of our mouth-puckering reactions to these suckers) and pretend it’s summer even as we head into the fall.
