Enjoy eating Fried Clams? in the Mid Atlantic area, You are usually eating the Pre-Breaded and frozen version. Have any idea how long they have been in the freezer? Any Clue what type of clams you are eating? Probably not. Our good friend Norman suggested that we serve up some fried Clam Bellies this Weekend . So, we called our Fish Monger and sure enough, we have a half gallon of Freshly Shucked Ipswich (Mass) Clam Bellies arriving tomorrow. If you have never sampled Fried Clam Bellies, you really should! Tender and Delicious. Sometimes Drizzled with Malt Vinegar. Another Friend, Peter, loves them as well! We are also going to be serving up a noted Rhode Island Favorite..'Stuffies' (Suggested by Heather) These are Quahog Stuffed Clams. We are not Sure if we will have fresh (Never Frozen) Chesapeake Bay Rockfish this week. The weather has been less than perfect and it has kept the commercial fleet in port. If they are available, we will have them. If not, we will be substituting FRESH (Never Frozen) Gulf Red Snapper. Another fish we will be offering will be FRESH (Never frozen) Atlantic Cod! A delicious, flaky and mild cold water fish. Delicious Broiled, Baked or Fried! Our Scallops FRESH (Never frozen) North Atlantic Day Boat Sea Scallops! We know of Seafood and Where it comes from! Enjoy FRESH!

It's not only exciting, but very encouraging to see this many boats harvesting tasty Bivalves with Hand Tongs. We are sure the many of our customers remember the days when Gum Bar and many other areas of the Potomac were covered with Chesapeake Bay Deadrise's this time of the year! Not to mention the 'Hustle and Bustle' at L.L. Curley's Oyster Packing Company and Billy Powell's Oyster Company Company! Colonial Beach was at the 'Center' of the vibrant Potomac River Oyster Industry. So proud of this heritage!
