Craving linguini with clam sauce but since I haven't had it for years, don't know where to get a delicious bowlful. Manhattan and Brooklyn suggestions please. TIA

    In Queens Don Peppe

    In Manhattan Babbo .........and at the other end of the spectrum I like Carmines clam sauce. Carmines is made with TONS of garlic, chopped clams and tends to be oily (but to me in a good way).

      I have actually had excellent linguini with white clam sauce at the Queen in Brooklyn. Very old school.

          Umberto's on Mulberry St in Little Italy makes outrageous clam sauce, it's the house speciality and it's open until 4am in case you have late night cravings

            I enjoyed the white clam sauce at La Villa on 5th Ave in Park Slope
