Clams may be the last thing to pique your interest at Holeman & Finch, but these Georgia beauties are not to be missed. Plump, tender, and pleasantly salty, these clams hail from the waters around Sapelo Island between Savannah and Brunswick. H&F bathes them in a cream and chicken stock broth spiked with rye whiskey and studded with bits of bacon and slivered jalapeño. Each bite brings alternating bursts of meaty smoke and sharp spice, all the better to sop up with crunchy H&F bread. $12.
