2011 BEST Clam Shack, Martha's Vineyard
If the location in Menemsha’s western cove feels a bit desolate, rest assured: The Bite’s bright blue picnic tables will beckon like a desert oasis. You’ll quickly find yourself tearing through brown paper bags turned translucent with grease to get at overflowing cartons of oysters, clams, zucchini, and shrimp delicately fried to a flavorful crisp. Grab a cup of the creamy quahog chowder to complete what might be the quintessential summer meal.
