Missy Robbins has an instant hit on her hands with her new restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located in a former auto body shop that’s been given a minimalist design makeover, Lilia features a menu of irresistible pastas, grilled meats and seafood. One of the standout dishes is grilled clams with Calabrian chili and bread crumbs, a spicy spin on a beloved Italian-American shellfish dish infused with smoke from the crackling fire. The flavor-packed clams are among the reasons why Lilia has attracted a stylish and vibrant crowd since the doors opened — even before the raves, including a three-star review from Pete Wells in The New York Times, came pouring in. Watch Robbins prepare the dish in the latest installment of Food Republic’s Plate Deconstruction video series.
