STL -whole (i.e. w/ belly) fried clams?
Any restaurant offering these?
No and you won't\. STL restaurants rarely serve clams and if they do they're steamed and if they're steamed they're manila or mahogany clams. We rarely see steamers and if so, no one woudl buy them. GO to Seafood City and hope you catch them on a good day. You can try to call (which I've never done) but don't hold your breath. They occasionally have steamer clams. then you can fry your own.
