      Fairfield Weekly's site seems to be down (maybe inundated by clam lovers?). Anyone care to offer a summary and reveal the mysterious "BROB"?...Never mind, clams are great motivators and I checked out Fairfield restos in the yellow pages--it's the Black Rock Oyster Bar & Grill. Is this place new?

          I Love Love Love the Fried Claims at Black Rock Oyster Bar. My favorite local place to get them! So glad they made the list. I had them recently at SONO Seafood, but they were nowhere near as good, although you cannot beat that harbor location.
