[This is the latest installment in our new post series “Amuse Bouche Philadelphia,” in which we highlight must-try menu items at restaurants and eateries around the city. We’re calling the post series “Amuse Bouche” because, like a traditional amuse bouche that you might receive before a meal, these posts are intended to tease and excite your taste buds. Only we’ll have to try to do it visually. Hope you enjoy.]

Summer means charcoal-grilled burgers, cold beers, ice cream — and fresh-from-the-seashore seafood.

Fathom Seafood House is bringing a slice of the shore to Fishtown with a cornucopia of fresh and carefully selected lobster, clams, mussels and shrimp available all summer long.

The newest addition to the seafood empire of Mike Stollenwerk, chef-owner of Fish and Little Fish, Fathom Seafood House is a gastropub that’s all about seafood.

The raw bar selection is amazing: east and west coast oysters, littleneck clams, salt roasted “we-peel” shrimp, chilled lobster and blue crabs.

Fathom is also rocking clam bakes affordably priced at $25 per person for a heaping pot of delicious seafood. Spring for a $10 pot deposit, and bring the pot back for 10% off your next clam bake.

Or you can order a la carte, with an extensive raw bar and entree menu to choose from. Wild Littleneck Clams with chorizo? Peekytoe crab cake sandwich? Lobster grilled cheese? Don’t mind if we do.
