2015 Best Fried Clams

Yankee Lobster Co.

There are times when a pudgy belly is a good thing, especially if you’re talking about fried clams. Thankfully, Yankee Lobster’s are plump, tender, and fried to crispy excellence. All they need is a squeeze of lemon and a dab of tartar sauce, if you please.
