Whole belly fried clams
Does anyone know of a source of whole belly fried clames in northern Bergen County or Southern Rockland Caounty?
It's not exactly southern Rockland, but if you're willing to drive a bit farther you could try Gilligan's in Pomona, NY. It's on Route 202 at the intersection of Route 45. It's a large, sunny fish and seafood restaurant attached to a fish market, and they do serve fried belly clams.
Yes, it's a chain, but reliable witnesses have reported that Legal Seafoods serves good whole-belly fried clams. There are locations in Paramus and West Nyack.
