For Mr. Peanut Head's birthday, we went to Peasant. He's never been there before but several of us have. It's an oldie but a goodie. Solid Italian food with bold flavors. We sat as a fairly large group so I didn't take pictures of everything. I mainly focused on my own dishes and Mr. M&P's.
I went for the special of the night which were baked razor clams. Usually when I order razor clams, they're simply prepared with grilling with lemon and oil. This version was topped with a garlic and herb breadcrumb then baked. The result was something quite delicious. Tender and plump whole razor clams cooked in its own juices and topped with a nice lemony and herbaceous bread crumb. It wasn't overwhelming at all and let the freshness of the clams shine through.
