Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Bond over the sea's bounty with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of seafood and drinks at Dino's Seafood in North Haven.
Dino's Seafood's culinary experts have been culling sub-aquatic ingredients to build a menu of tasty seafood for 43 years. The jumbo-shrimp cocktail harmonizes with the maryland crab cakes ($6.95 each), and the rhode island and new england clam chowders play a baseline of hearty flavors ($3.25/cup; $3.80/bowl). A briny band of fried seafood dinners unites with french fries and coleslaw ($9.50–$19.95), and a cadre of baked and broiled fish dishes swagger from diner to diner, presenting a choice of two sides ($13.95–$19.00). Chefs construct the surf ‘n’ turf out of an 8-ounce steak, a surfboard covered in artificial grass, and a choice of fried scallops, shrimp, or clams ($16.95). While sailors dine on the fruit of the sea, landlubbers nosh on an assortment of sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs ($2.05–$12.20). Guests can park walking apparatuses in one of Dino's booths or chairs, which, like boxing matches held at Bed, Bath & Beyond, are cushioned.
