Clamato is an intimate bistro known for its small plates and short menu. Since opening, the sister of famed French restaurant Septime has served a concise selection of seafood and vegetables, such as raw cuttlefish in fennel-infused buttermilk or white asparagus cooked in seawater. With its forest-green façade, Clamato’s quaint interior brings nature indoors with details such as wooden benches and fresh flowers. Clamato is closed Mondays and Tuesdays but serves lunch on weekends. The bistro is sans réservation—that is, the early bird gets the worm.
