We started out the festivities on Sunday at Il Buco (NYC), where we ate well and enjoyed simply, exquisitely prepared dishes- in a dimly lit dining room. (I have no good photos of our meal, ergo the above Il Buco website photo.)
Moby's (Highlands, NJ) Moby's was mentioned in a NY Times piece, and since we wanted to try a new place, we took a drive down to the shore.
The soft-shell crab looked lonely on his roll,
while The Daughter's excellent fried clam sandwich
was bursting at the seams.
The raw clams and oysters were fantastic.
(Not recommended: the lobster roll- tiny, stringy meat.)
