Oceanside dining

I'm ready to order. I'll start with a cup of R. I. clam chowder, then have the special shore dinner sampler. This place is still in existence as an exclusive "members only" private club. Few things taste better than a fresh seafood meal eaten with a panoramic view of the ocean while surrounded by salty air and soaring seagulls. Wish I was there.

Lunch

We'll start with a half-dozen clamcakes, and chowdah all around. (CLEAR chowdah. Not white, not red, but CLEAR. This is Rhode Island) Then we'll have some steamiz. And then maybe a coffee cabinet for dessert.
