Boston's 25 best comfort foods
The Clam Box opens for the season each year in mid-February. As you may be able to tell from the long lines, the fried clams are worth waiting all winter for. The shellfish comes from Ipswich whenever possible, so its fresh as can be; this seafood shack never uses frozen. The batter is light and just crunchy enough, allowing the sweet, tender clams to shine.
