The Gowanus clam shack’s owner Aaron Lefkove sends word that the restaurant has added what it’s strategically calling “weekend lunch,” which is another way of not using the word brunch, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. If you enjoy Cap’n Crunch and clam rolls in the same sitting, congratulations, you know where to go. Click on through for the full menu, which also includes a duck egg sandwich, shrimp and grits, and fluffy fromage blanc pancakes. Also, if brunch isn’t your thing, Littleneck has introduced two new oyster happy hour deals: One is that all tap beers are $5 with accompanying bivalve at $1 apiece, while the “Rhode Island Meets Long Island” $10 deal gets you one half-dozen local oysters with the Narragansett tallboy of your choice.
