    Clams

    We feature both Atlantic and Pacific clams in our recipes. Locally grown species we use include Manila clams and as season permits, Alaska Razor clam.

    The Pacific razor clam is an exceptionally meaty shellfish which ranges from California to Alaska. This species has an elongated oblong narrow shell, which can grow from 3 to 6.25 inches in length and is traditionally served fried and crispy.

    Manilas are favored by chefs because of their sweetness, their ease of opening upon being steamed, their long shelf life, and their dramatically varied colorful shell patterns.
