Fish & Chips (mostly fish) in Connecticut
Here in CT from Seattle. Will be visiting relatives near Old Saybrook a couple days. Looking for suggestions for great fish and chips, or fish in general along the coast anywhere from New Haven area east to Rhode Island. Thanks for all ideas.
Starting at NewHaven and proceeding eastward here are some Fish&Chips standbys:
Lenny's Indian Head, Branford
USS ChowderPot III, Branford (Not my favorite, but NH Advocate likes it)
Lenny & Joes Fish Tail, Madison
Westbrook Lobster, Clinton-Westbrook line
Lenny & Joes Fish Tail, Westbrook
Bill's Seafood, Westbrook
Johnny Ad's, Old Saybrook
Flanders Fish Market, East Lyme
Captain Scott's Lobster Dock, New London (al fresco)
Abbott's Lobster, Noank
Skipper's Dock, Mystic
Sea Swirl, Mystic (Clam shack type)
Skipper's Dock, Stonington
(There are lots more, but either I haven't been there or don't recommend them)
We had to bring a car to Old Saybrook for service just last week and based on our experience there, I would start with Johnny Ads on the Post Road (RT 1) right there in OS. We had the absolute best fried clams there! We have gone to Essex, MA
(Woodmans, the Clam Box and the Village) and Johnny Ads fried clams were over the top and a tank of gas cheaper. We had tunnel vision for the fried clams, but their menu is much broader and I would give it a try.
Cove Fish Market in Stonington has the best fried fish I've ever had. Esquire included Cove's fried cod sandwich on their list of best sandwiches in America.
