After last year's virtually lost season steamers are reappearing at Court St's Fish Tales....at $8/lb. They tell me not to expect or hope for a return to old prices (like around $4-$5 IIRC?). I wouldn't even consider buying a pound of soft shell clams...there's just no point. But 16 bux of clam heaven and then asking 'what's for dinner?'....... I can't afford that. Has anyone seen anything anywhere that makes the Fish Tales price an aberration, like maybe the GAP market? (Although FT is always high, I don't expect that they would be all that out of line with the general market so I'm not very hopeful with this post).
Damn, I never expected to see steamers on my 'out of my league' list.
