Littleneck, a new clamshack with chef Alan Harding at the helm, opens tomorrow in Gowanus

Remember Littleneck, the upcoming Gowanus clam shack promising a raw bar, lobster, beer, wine and…clams that we first got wind of back in July? When we saw Carroll Gardens Patch reporting that they’ve got a new chef in the kitchen, we dropped a line to co-founder Aaron Lefkove to see what’s up. We got a bigger bite than we expected: Littleneck opens tomorrow!

The new chef is Alan Harding, known for his work at PatoisPacifico, The Farm on Adderley, Hot Bird, and the Gowanus Yacht Club. Lefkove explains how they met:

“Alan knew our carpenter, Nick, and he would drop in on us and check out what was going on. Eventually he offered to work with us in a sort of mentor capacity, and so far he has really been kicking our asses into gear. He also stepped in as plumber, electrician, carpenter, and chauffeur at various times, which is handy.”

With a renowned Brooklyn chef at the tiller and a kitchen full of New England-style in the hold, Littleneck is ready for action. Stop by the restaurant, check out their DIY renovations, and hold on to that last bite of summer with an iron grip. The final word from Lefkove:

“We open Wednesday with Alan in the kitchen. It is gonna be awesome.”
