Crustacean alert: The Italian Clambake is now at Carmine’s on the Upper West Side, every Monday and Tuesday year-round.
Here’s the deal — two 1 lb. lobsters, six backed clams, 12 mussels, salad or pasta, plus potatoes and polenta, for $50 for two people, up $5 from spring. Carmine’s is at Broadway and 90th Street.
Note — this lobster deal is not available at the Carmine’s in the Broadway theater district, and there’s no information about it on the restaurant website. I know it’s happening because I saw the chalkboard outside the restaurant, and a manager promises me the $50 for two deal is good year-round.
