According to Luke's Lobster's website and the in-house menu: "Fried whole belly clams coming soon to the Upper East Side." :-)

They were still not on the menu as of Mon., but I've been in there when they were giving out samples and they were delicious.
Luke's has them now. $20 for the smallest portion I've ever seen. Worse than the size was the battter or lack of it. Somewhere between breading and batter- totally lacking crispness.
Don't know if they are the best in the city, but I have had them at Ed's Lobster Bar and really enjoyed them.

I second Ed's. Went there for lunch a few weeks ago and they were surprisingly good, plump and juicy fried clam bellys. Almost enjoyed them more than the lobster roll.
Do either of you recall what you paid for the fried clams at Ed's? It's listed as market price on the website and I'm curious approximately how much I should expect to pay. TIA.
I didn't look at the price. Sorry.
For some bar type, really breaded fried clams I suggest Stout.
Thanks. I think they only have clam strips. I am looking for the whole or belly clams.
