Salty Dog/Fanieul Hall
I probably haven't eaten here in 10+ years but had a fried clam craving yesterday. Called to see if they had whole clams..and if the bellies were decent size. Whoever answered the phone understood and said the clams looked really good.
A short while later I was sitting outside and enjoying a healthy portion of big bellied fried clams; perfectly fried..decent cole slaw, crap french fries. Who'd a thunk it?..:)
BTW, the clam crawl has a few openings..contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a day of hounds visiting 4 or 5 or more of the North Shores best. All are welcome. Please per CH rules; contact Treb..no onlist discussion or planning.
I ended up there with my parents after we tried to get into various touristy spots with no success; it was between Salty Dog and that place whose gimmick is to have their waiters abuse you. I didn't expect much from Salty Dog but was very pleasantly surprised by excellent clams and chowder.
