Teaching a man to fish feeds him for a lifetime, as it restores his confidence in his learning abilities and inspires him to re-enroll in cosmetology school. Savor the spoils of a soul-searching salmon search with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of clams, lobster, fish, drinks, and more at Alex's Seafood Restaurant & Clam Bar in New Castle.
The only original business remaining since the New Castle Farmers Market’s 1954 debut, Alex's placates palates with fresh platters off its ocean-raiding menu. Served with signature "sinus clearing cocktail sauce," the freshly shucked clams on the half shell (starting at $1 each) tease noses and thrill tongues like extra-bubbly bubbly. Cheesy crab fries heap cheddar, colby jack, and mozzarella cheeses atop fries garnished with old bay spice and fresh crab meat ($11.95). Fillets of fish ($19.95), from salmon to mahi mahi, sport golden tans from a fryer or the broiled perfumes of seasoned lemon butter, prompting unlucky fishermen to relate the tale of the 7,000 that got away. Land loyalists can allay their consciences with the boneless rib-eye steak and six butterfly shrimp ($34.95).
Alex's quenches thirsts with suds that include the seasonal Sam Adams release ($3.75 for a 16 oz. glass). After the fishy feast, spend the evening browsing the market’s many shops, from bakeries and clothing stores to fresh produce markets.
