Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana

157 Wooster S
New Haven, CT 06511
(203) 865-5762

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.

My girlfriend and her sister thought this was a better pie than Modern. I thought it was competitive, but I would give the edge to Modern. I was stuffed at this point and it may have made sense to jog into the city as we had dinner reservation later that night.
