Clams are special! Good fried stuff is an integral part of the late spring/summer/fall dive season in New England. There is nothing quite like inhaling the aroma of fried seafood wafting from a clam shack and secretly scuttling off to your favorite spot* with a grease-stained brown bag filled with fried Fruits-de-Mer. So, in the interest of promoting these lovely artery blockers I've created this chart. It features my obsession with fried clam bellies, as well as recommendations that came from this original thread: http://www.scubaboard.com/forums/new-england-lobsta-divahs/203592-best-clam-bellies-after-dive.html Four stars represents the epitome of "fry-dom." I have personally tried these restaurants and can vouch for them. The unmarked restaurants are recommendations by fellow SB'ers. Please feel free to share your New England area (ONLY) "fry" experiences. * don't forget your significant others during your gustatory moment(s) - you will never hear the end of it!
