Ken & Cook

19 Kenmare St. New York, NY 10012 | Soho | 212-966-3058

Location Description:

19 Kenmare once housed Little Charlie’s Clam Bar and its giant platters of clams oreganata. In a kind of winky-face remembrance, Ken & Cook has christened its clubby downstairs lounge Lil’ Charlie’s. A fresh, springy nest of linguini with clams in a light white wine and butter sauce is the better homage. Though that dish is a good one, most guests appear to be here for the swanky Nolita scene rather than the food, which is prepared a bit carelessly by chef Richard Diamonte.
