        Hey how r ya. I/we get all of our seafood from Foley Fish in New Bedford these were great and plump plus I dont trust the freshness of restaurants in preparing them unless I go to Baltimore on business then its as bling as you can get. Come and see the new culinary school its the flagship of all J&W schools.

        1. re: Frank Terranova

          cool, will definitely check out Foley's
          have only had their products through Roche Brothers
          are they open to the public (retail) at 77 Wright Street New Bedford?
          Actually J&W is my alma mater, Teach.
          was cooking with class there for 4 years back in the 90s

            They were serving them at 1149 (Warwick) Friday night. I was reluctant to go to this resaurant since they opened. My wife had a gift certificate so so I tried it for the first time. I was impressed. The waiter was extremely attentative and pleasent, the appetizer was very good (wedge salad). Although I did not care for the "Brick oven" pizza, my wifes Filet was exceptional, very nice char-broiled flavor and cooked to just the right doneness...

    2. Have shown up on Shoreline Ct - had an outstanding soft shell crab entree at the Cafe Routier last week !

      1. I bought one to cook at home this weekend from Anthony's in Middletown. Rhumbline usually has them on their menu when they are in season and they do a great job with them. Not sure if they are on the menu now, but worth a phone call.
