Try the New England Little Neck Clams, peppered with vine-ripened tomatoes and lathered with champagne butter at White Elephant's harborside restaurant.

Although the dining room itself-set in a former sea captain’s house-could use a facelift, the food delivers. Try the seared sea scallops with scallion pancake, napa cabbage, grilled peaches, and smoked bacon.

Try to get a table overlooking the sandy beach at the Ocean House Restaurant, in Dennisport, and go deep into the land of fusion. (Roasted black cod with edamame ravioli and miso-truffle broth, anyone?)

The heart of New England cuisine is seafood, and this restaurant keeps the lobsters alive in their multiple hundred-gallon tanks until they’re ordered.

A venerable, family-owned restaurant since 1958, the Galley—where untold numbers of Nantucketers have celebrated their anniversary dinners—got a chic new facelift for its own 50th anniversary this summer.

The Wall of Fame at Moby Dick’s is covered with framed photos of patrons who bought Moby Wear in the gift shop and then sent a picture of themselves wearing the apparel in various U.S. cities.

The town of Essex on the West Side of Cape Ann is famous for fried whole-belly clams. Shabby-chic Woodman’s claims to have invented the treat in 1916.
