Steamers at Brooklyn Fish Camp

The simplest of summer pleasures in a shell

It’s officially summer. So let everyone else sit in beach traffic on Friday afternoons, and enjoy this seashore favorite right in Brooklyn: Canadian steamers with drawn butter and lemon ($16). Served in a classic metal bucket, and simply steamed, the clams at  Brooklyn Fish Camp are plump, delectable, and fun to pull from the shell, coat with butter and chew. They go down especially easy with a crisp, aromatic Stiegl lager ($8).

An offshoot of the popular Mary’s Fish Camp in the West Village, Brooklyn Fish Camp also features Mary’s popular lobster roll ($20) and has the fair-weather bonus of a roomy, relaxed garden, with picnic tables — the perfect place to while away an afternoon on half-Fridays. There’s plenty of incentive to go during the week, however, with $20 bottle wine specials on Mondays; 1/2 dozen oysters for $9 on Tuesdays; and all-you-can-eat peel-and-eat Old Bay shrimp and beer for $30 on Wednesdays. Bring a child under 8 for lunch and dinner any day of the week, and they eat for $5.
