CT Whole belly clams OLD SCHOOL

Bob | Jun 10, 2004 09:37 AM

My 79 yr old Dad grerw up on the North Shore and was raised on Fried Clams. I am taking him out for a daytrip on Father's day. I am willing to travel 50 miles from Cheshire CT for THE BEST WHOLE BELLY CLAMS! I am looking for a place that serves old time Ipswhich stlye whole Belly clams, lightly battered small bellies not the giant pus clams that would of been tossed at the cook 40 years ago

So Where are the best? ATM I am leaning toward the newer Fish and Chips place in Seymour CT. An absoloute must is the clams can't be of the giant belly variety. Nothing is quite so bad as getting an order of clams and seeing a dozen giant leathery clams with Belly's almost as big as tomatoes ala 3/4 of the places that serve clams in CT
