Every year my family and 20 or so friends get together to cook a real New England clam bake. This is the kind that you cook right in the sand. Its a great time but involves some real work. Im talking about digging a pit, hauling rocks, building a fire and prepping all of the great food that will be cooked. Wouldnt it be nice if you could have that delicious end result without all the hard work? Well now lucky Sarasota diners can do just that.
Heres the deal. The Lobster Pot on Siesta Key offers their version of a New England clam bake right in their restaurant. For $26.99 you get, a Maine lobster, steamer clams, mussels, red potatoes and corn on the cob. Talk about a feast! And, no work involved for you.
