Has shad season started yet in CT? We'll be in the vicinity most of this week and would love a shad dinner.

    Number One Fish on State St. in Hamden had their first delivery of shad and shad roe yesterday, will have more on Monday. 203-624-6171. It is a superior fish market.

      Thanks, Veggo - will check it out, but looking specifically for a restaurant dinner.

        You could ask if they supply any restaurants. Hey, at least you know it's out there now!

      Call Fresh Salt in Old Saybrook to see if they have it on their menu yet. Last year they offered a choice of shad, shad roe, or a combo of both for dinner.

        Thanks, rbailin. I checked, and no dice. We'll just have to come back later in May or June and try again.
