Anyone have a preference between Randazzo's and Clemente's Clam Bars? My fellow and I are looking to have a seafood adventure this weekend, and we thought it would be fun to try one of these places. Thanks in advance for any input.

    If you look through the threads about Randazzo's, they will tell you not to go. I don't know about Clemente's but I do know about this one and it is terrific:

        Site's terrible; food's good. Try the grilled octopus appetizer.

      So, I really wanted this place to be good. Unfortunately, it's one of those Brooklyn places that everyone who goes there is drinking the Kool Aid that this place is an institution and the food is great and its awesome that they call calamari "galamah" and its basically sacrilege to say that it's not awesome. I tried the chowder (ok) the steamers (bad) fried clams (very bad) and soft-shelled crab (ok). This with a couple beers was more than $100. The fried clams I'm fairly certain were frozen, not made on site. Though I did not order the galamah[sic], it did look to be freshly and lightly breaded to order and looked good out of the fryer. This place has charm, it has character, it just needs to serve better food.
