I've been hearing about Lenny's for years. Finally made it there. Glad I did. A bit of a drive off I-95 in the New Haven area, but worth it.
I started with Rhode Island Clam Chowder. Rhode Island, which is broth based, seems to be the black sheep of chowders - most outside of Rhode Island prefer New England or Manhattan style. Not me. I'm a convert to Rhode Island clam chowder.
The clams were gigantic, plump, tender and delicious. Only objection, the clams are batter fried. I prefer breaded with corn meal. Fresh cut french fries too, though not twice fried.
