Chick’s in West Haven, CT

After I left Yale yesterday I went to Chick’s in West Haven to eat some clams.  Peter and I have been making a bit of a study of fried clams in the Northeast, and he had encouraged me to check it out.  (See previous post)  I had originally hoped to go to Stowe’s, which is just down the road, but they are closed on Mondays.  Chick’s is big, and was quite empty at about 4.00 pm, which made me a bit nervous.  But the clams were very good.

They didn’t have that real ocean taste like ones from the North Shore of Massachusetts, as I assume they came from somewhere in the Sound, but the breading was very light and they were quite hot.  It was nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the late afternoon light.

    Only stopped there once. Use to go to West Haven Ct once a week for the Psychiatric center. We would deliver and Pick up around 2000 doz Earrings for our Sheltered WorkShop! Our main job was putting them on cards for retail sale. The Clams are good!
