There may be plenty of fish in the sea, but there aren’t nearly enough shellfish in Shinnecock Bay.
Tucked into a corner of my favorite phylum, Mollusca, is a class of creatures known as gastropods. Their name describes their two major body features, stomach and foot, and their main activity, crawling around the sea floor and devouring everything in their path.
Bell & Anchor, the fish-focused restaurant tucked away on Noyac Road, inspires nostalgia. This winter, that careful marriage of tradition and innovation will take a new form.
Can reviving a legendary shellfish help revive a culture?
Scallops, Pekins, sarsaparilla and other edible memories.
