16. Fried Clams
88 Eastern Ave. (Rte. 133)
The “clam highway” on Boston’s North Shore and Cape Ann boasts at least five fabulous shacks, including Woodman’s, said to be the inventor of fried clams. Our preference is Farnham’s: light, not greasy, no rubbery clam strips, just sweet-and-tender bellies and necks.
