Anybody have a recommendation, app or entree, price irrelevant?

    Unfortunately, there ain't no such animal in these parts. Cantler's is the only place I know that serves whole fried clams -- and they're OK. Black Salt in DC has great fried clams, just like NE, and Kinkeads' are excellent too.

      We had them recently at Legal Seafood, Inner Harbor, they were better than Cantler's, but still not like what you get in New England.

        Yes, I've had them at Kincaid's and Legal, but not Black Salt or Cantler's, and I heard Hank's in DC also has them.
        Oh, well.

          I know you are looking for something in Annapolis but I know they have them at Hank's Oyster Bar in Dupont Circle. I haven't had them before but I'm sure they are really good since that restaurant does has excellent food...and usually stands up to my Native Bostonian test! :)

            Do you mean the whole belly fried clams that they serve at clam shacks on Cape cod? I love them! I have not seen them served anywhere in the Baltimore/Annapolis/DC area. Has anyone? or is the post just talking about regular fried clam strips?

              Yes, I mean the whole belly fried clams. I've also had them a few times at the Island Inn in Stevensville on Main St., just over the Kent Narrows Bridge.
