What: Fried whole clams are quintessential New England comfort food (see: Boston, fried local clams), and coastal Connecticut is yet another great spot to indulge. Whole clams differ from “clam strips,” of course, in that the flavorful belly is included in the fry; as such, they’re sometimes listed on menus as whole-bellied clams. New Haven proper lacks a good clam shack, but they’re not too hard to find a short drive away. A plate of salty, crunchy, summery goodness awaits.
When: Daily, 11am-10pm (closes at 9pm Mon-Thurs from January through about March)
