Well, if you’re in Maine, clam shack cuisine is, indeed fine dining. Mainers could practically live off clams because Maine fried clams are whole-belly Ipswich clams, and they’ve just got the lightest coating of crumbs that does nothing to stand in the way of the yummy taste of ocean and summertime—and don’t even get me started on the lobster rolls. But most importantly, in Maine, lobsters are just cute red puppies with massive claws and big bug eyes.
Maine: attack of the lobsters.
Do you want something other than an ocean creepy crawler for dinner? That’s just too bad, Karen. In Maine, you eat your lobster bisque or you starve.
