Clams-on-the-half-shell in Connecticut

In the past few years, the price for raw clams at my favorite seafood shack in Norwalk, CT has gone from $9.50/dozen to $15.00/dozen. As someone who can easily scarf-down a couple dozen with a frosty beer, the current price is ridiculous. Are there any bargain clam spots left near Stamford, CT? Thanks for any and all ideas!

  1. I know it's not for everybody, but the best deal I have found is to buy the 50 count littleneck bag at Shoprite and open them yourself. Just examine the bags closely for broken or open ones. Fifty littlenecks for 17 clams is pretty good!
