After taking aim at Artichoke with its artichoke pie, L’asso is now shooting across the bow of its neighbor Lombardi’s by introducing a clam pie (it’s on the specials chalkboard for now and may soon make the permanent menu). Freshly shucked clams are sautéed in wine and thrown on the pie along with garlic, parsley, pecorino, and cracked pepper. Nineteen dollars gets you a twelve-incher (keep in mind, the clam pie at Lombardi’s is $26). L’asso tells us it’ll also be serving Stumptown coffee starting this week (it’s just awaiting a Fecto brewing machine and staff training), and there’s also a new mozzarella, Parmesan, and oregano slice.

About I Dream Of Pizza
Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
