A few months ago I had dinner with my oldest friend at Pizza Sirenetta. It’s adjacent to and operated by the same folks at the lovely Mermaid Inn where you can get great oysters at he happy hour. Th
The draw for me was the promise of a clam pie, though. I love clam pies, like a girl who grew up going down the cape and eating fried clams like candy every salty summer.
In my pizza hunting adventures around New York City, Pizza Sirenetta quenches that fancier-than-usual rustic Neapolitan pizza experience, similar to that of the late Franny’s which also had a great clam pie.)
It’s got one of the best clam pies in the city, too. It has that rich combo of thin crust, creamy sauce in place of cheese, and peppery parsley to compliment speckles of clams. I’m thinking about another subtle but rich clam pizza for a celebration in the future.
