The Randazzo family has been serving seafood on Emmons Avenue since 1932 and it shows. They’re most famous for their fried calamari (Gal-ah-MAD, in the local dialect), which is served with a homemade marinara sauce that comes in both medium and hot varieties. The baked clams and zuppa di mussels with red sauce are also worth trying if you like your bivalves hot, and their raw bar options are reliably good, which is not surprising given that you can practically toss your empty shells into the water from the storefront. For a non-seafood option, the fried zucchini is coated in classic Italian-style breadcrumbs and comes with a side of the same red sauce that Randazzo’s devotees love.
