Piss Clam for Dinner??

After dinner with a friend in Cobble Hill (Brooklyn) last night, we came upon this sign outside PJ Hanley's, a restaurant bar on the corner of Court Street and 4th Place. It was a sign advertising the dinner special for the day: lobster roll and piss clams. PISS CLAMS? It doesn't sound very appetizing, does it?

So have you ever had piss clams? Would you be interested to try them?

N.B.: Click here if you are interested to find out what piss clams are.

Piss clams, no. Crusty crabs, yes.

Really liked yesterday's photo. Sammy looks like he could cook up heaven and put it on a plate.

I don't think so Ming ..never heard of these kind of clams.....I'll have to do some research...if I don't find them, I will think this a "gimmic" and it worked...look at all the attention they are getting :)

Couldn't resist checking out the link. Never heard of them by that name - and I grew up in Maine. But there it is - on the link and another link from Google: weloveclams...... But advertised like that? Hmmmmmm.

Happy summer week-end. Is it beach time in NYC? Really hot in CA.

I'm not a great fan of clams... piss style or otherwise!
But I like clam chowder.

Thanks for educating me on piss clams :-)

Elliot had linguine and clams the other night for dinner, though I don't think they were piss clams.

Piss clams are just long necked steamers. They call them piss clams because if you step on them, they squirt
