The reason Eating Las Vegas® keeps harping on how good the food is at P. J. Clarke’s is because we’re astounded at how much better its provisions are than Palm’s or Joe’s Stone Crab, but we can’t help but noticing the latter always seem to have twice the customers.

After four lunches at P. J. Clarke’s, we’re tempted to say they’re doing almost everything right…except the salads. From the superlative burger to belly clams fried right, this is real Amurican food done with passion and good ingredients — in other words, food the way über-American chef Larry Forgione has always done it.
