Any strong opinions out there?Thanks.
Crabshell in Stamford has good whole bellies.....definitely not too fishy
Sandpiper in East Haven hasgood whole belly clams. I think I paid like 18.50 for the dinner over the summer.
Speaking for my father, a CT native who's lived the last 20 years in southern CA and HI, he can't return to CT (or anywhere else in New England) without stopping at Johnny Ads in Westbrook, specifically for whole belly clams.
Love Johnny Ad's.
Glenwood Drive In, Hamden, on Whitney Ave.
Jimmy's in West HavenSea Swirl in MysticLenny and Joes, Madison and Westbrook
Blue Sky Cafe in New Hartford/Barkhamsted usually has them...quite good...
I had some at the new Westville Fish in New Haven yesterday that were very good
black rock oyster bar in fairfield has good fried whole bellies
Tinkers in Hartford and City Fish Market in Rocky Hill have good whole bellies. Be sure to call ahead and make sure they have them, but both places usually do.
They are closed for the season, but I love the sea swirlhttp://www.seaswirlofmystic.com/
Depends-- of course! Are you looking to get them now bc many of the seasonal places are closed.
Anytime is fine!
I'm not big on clams but my parents swear by Sam the Clam in Southington.
Sam the Clams are always a little too fishy. My favorites are :#1 Seaswirl in Mystic. Been to many clam shacks, even in Mass. nothing beats them yet.#2 Johnny Ad's
