As the name implied, the
Clam Shop was devoted to
those who believed that all
that was good comes from the
sea . . . The menu featured a
high concentration of things
like clams, oysters, lobster,
king crab and fish, fish, fish.
Lobster was king at the
Clam Shop and the piece de

lobster . . . This was a
1Y4-pound beauty stuffed with

Oysters in season and clams
were another specialty at the
Clam Shop . . . Like the
lobster, they were flown in
every other day from the East

weekly price list to show you
that they bought nothing but
quality regardless of price.
Dave and Frank were
equally proud of their red

crab . . . As a concession to
the occasional eccentric who
came in for a steak, they had
excellent New York Strips

Cholesterholics love rich, fatty foods. They can't seem to get
through a day without lots of meat dripping in gravy. Cream
always goes into their coffee. One sweet dessert leads to
another. But the fact is, these foods can increase the level of
cholesterol in the blood which can lead to heart disease.
But there's a way to help yourself. By cutting down on the fatty
foods in your diet, you could reduce your blood cholesterol
level and perhaps reduce your chance of heart disease.
So if you think you might be a cholesterholic, contact your
American Heart Association for a diet good for life.
