We headed down to Wooster Street for Frank Pepe's, founded in 1925 and currently operating a handful of locations by surviving relatives within Connecticut and New York. We switched it up for the second pizzeria. As Pepe's is known for it's fresh clam pie, we went with the white pie for this visit. There were about 15 people in line and we were anxious to get into NYC, so we ordered a pie to go and ate it in the car.
$23.95 White clam pie with bacon (7)
In addition to freshly shucked clams, we got bacon to give the pie a surf 'n' turf flare. The clams were great and although the bacon was average, that grizzle juice on clams was reminiscent of bacon wrapped shrimp. Good flavor combination.
