Today I had lunch with a good friend from work and I suggested that we go to Mitchell’s Fish Market here in Tampa. I must say that the food there is excellent! They have freshly caught fish every day and the menu changes daily too, not only that its printed daily with a date/time stamp.
The one thing that separates this place from all the other sea food restaraunts that I’ve been to is that this place actually serves raw clams. For some reason thats a very hard commodity to get here in Tampa so I was quite excited to have some. I haven’t had raw clams since I lived in the north east and I used to eat them pretty regularly with my father when he bought them from Stew Leaonards on the weekly grocery trip. They even provided a soup sampler so we could choose what soup we preferred. I personally had an order of raw clams, the lobster bisque soup, and the grilled salmon with mashed potato’s for lunch. The food there is freakin awesome and I’m definately going to see if they have a location in Miami.
