Two Men and a Clam Rake

Antiques may be prized for higher-quality steel, but custom-made rakes are the best. Garden tools, such as pitchforks, can easily be converted to catch clams. Thin tines work best to find hard clams in rocky bottoms, and thicker tines suit soft clams in sandy or muddy bottoms.

Chef Mathias Brogie Hails from Stockholm and Keeps the Living Room Menu True to his Scandinavian Roots

A small herb garden, tucked behind the Maidstone, sets the tone for the 19-room inn and its Scandinavian restaurant, the Living Room. Sections of the white shingled building date back to the 1600s. From the sheepskin-draped Adirondack chairs on the porch, the view of East Hampton’s iconic town pond and South End Burial Grounds has not changed in four centuries. The settlers were not serving up caviar tacos, however.
