© London Lennie's
If you want the best clams in New York City, everyone says you have to go to London Lennie's. This Queens family-run seafood restaurant has been around for 50 years, so they must be doing something right. Far bigger than the fish-and-chips joint they used to be, London Lennie's has retained its character, its atmosphere, and the quality of its food. The son of the original London Lennie still goes to the fish market to pick up seafood for the daily menu, which is as diverse as their Queens clients, with many influences and something for everyone, offering fresh-caught fish, sushi, and a fabulous raw bar. The atmosphere has a bit of a London pub vibe: Cozy, loud, unpretentious, and fun. The menu is huge, and you can still find great fish and chips, but you can also find five spice rubbed tuna steak with soba noodle salad and bok choy, soaked in hoisin sauce. The extensive wine list from all over the world also has something for everyone.
