Tasty Clam Bellies & Stuffed Clams at JP's, City Island...

On our way to a pre-holiday mixer on City Island in the Bronx we decided to drop in on JP’s to wish him a happy Thanksgiving. Don’t get there often. It is an eccentric restaurant in many ways, but John does put out some good dishes. Asked him to pick a couple of appetizers and out came two platters with clam bellies and overstuffed clams. I must say, they were great with the sides of tartar and cocktail sauce…
