I think you are talking about The Pine Grove, they had the best fried clams I have ever had. Sadly it has changed hands in the last 20 years or so, I think it was a Chinese rest. for a while,

LOL!! You just reminded me of my first trip to NYC. I was about nine-years-old and my dad had to be there for a trial. He was a SCHP and had to testify about a wreck he worked involving the explosion of a gas tank on a Pinto(?)...anyway, we had a meal at the Howard Johnson's and I ordered the fried clams. I was presented with an ENORMOUS plate of them. I don't think I'll ever forget that. We also ran into Nipsey Russell and some other folks. My parents were more into him than I, but it was the '70s and I recognized him... .
