I’ve been eating clams posillipo since I was 18. I had no idea they actually were a dish made famous because the late great Frank Sinatra loved them and use to order them often at a very famous restaurant I had been to several times called Patsy’s, in New York City. I only knew them as clams with tomatoes, garlic and herbs. It’s a very simple dish and my favorite part is placing a piece of Tuscan garlic bread in the bottom of the bowl, placing the clams all around the bread and gently pour that delicous sauce right over the clams and bread. The last great treat to end the eating frenzy is the bread that has soaked up all those great clam juices and tomato flavors. A must try if you are a big fan of clams like I am.
