A Brief History of Vincent’s
|Teddy Roosevelt was President, Ty Cobb is still a rookie and it will be 16 years before women are guaranteed the right to vote in 1920…Through 2 world wars, The Great Depression, man’s successful landing on the moon, 27 World Championship wins by the Yankees and the birth of the internet, Vincent’s Clam Bar continues today, offering authentic homemade Italian food and the quintessential New York dining experience.
The year was 1894 and the location was New York’s Little Italy where Giuseppe and Carmela Siano brought their rich Italian culture, setting up shop selling clams, mussels and scungilli out of a pushcart on the corners of Mott and Hester Streets. Even then, the key to a successful business was all about location, as the Italian immigrants in this area longed for a taste of their homeland found in the foods offered at Giuseppe and Carmela’s pushcart. Business became so successful that the Siano’s decided to move into the store front on that same corner naming their new restaurant after their first son Vincent establishing the official opening of Vincent’s Clam Bar in 1904.
|Using only the finest of ingredients in old world recipes, this century old tradition continues today as the Spirit of Little Italy comes alive every day at Vincent’s Clam Bar in Carle Place Long Island.
