We had great (underscored) fried clams w/ bellies at Westfair Fish and Chips in Westport CT. Fresh-tasting, perfectly fried--A+. I thought the Rhode Island clam chowder was too salty; and I wasn't so crazy about the wide-cut fries or the slightly too-sweet/gloppy cole slaw. But the onlon rings were to die for! You can get sodas/juices from a refrigerated case--too bad no beer. The woman behind the counter is efficient and friendly, w/ a warm smile. It's a bit hard to find--in the back of a sort of strip mall and very simple, w/ a few tables and a lobster pot and photographs of the sea and a TV going. But if you're looking for great fried clams w/ bellies and terrific onion rings in this part of CT, search no farther!
