Benny's Famous Fried Clams - Portland Maine
At Benny's you'll find native Mainers cooking it their way. And their way is a delicious no-fuss method of coaxing flavors out of local foods. If paper napkins and plastic forks don't get your knickers in a twist, then Benny's is for you. The Lobster PERFECT! The fried clams superb and the fries, we asked up front for crispy and got it. On a whim we'd ordered crab cakes. So good we ordered more! Being we had a case of wine in the trunk and Benny's has a BYOB license, we opened a few favorite bottles to augment the meal. No corkage fee and the waitress offered us glasses with a smile. Outdoor seating did not thwart the service and we found eating Maine's Classic Plates al fresco part of the picnicy charm.
Benny's? Well, we'll be back upon our return from the Maritime Provinces of Canada!
