Looking for FOODIE Advice for NEW ENGLAND

We are taking a 12 day road trip: starting in New Haven and going all the way up to .  
We are staying in Tilton NH just because it is close to Gilford NH and we have tickets to see James Taylor there Monday night! In fact, the concert is what started the road trip and everything kind of got built around that... BUT, other than the concert, the MAIN emphasis will be on FOOD!!!
Let me list the towns we are visiting, and maybe someone can give me some food info and suggestions...
New Haven
New London/Mystic
South Kingstown/
Boston (2 nights)
Concord/Tilton NH

We are staying one night in each of the above except for Boston. Also, staying a night in Meriden CT on the return trip home. We are into quaint, historic downtown areas, classic New England towns/villages, some antiques/flea markets, but mostly FOOD!! Especially ANYTHING that we can't get around the North Georgia area, such as GREAT seafood and more!!!

If you want information on New Haven and Mystic take a look at this:
Sea Swirl in Mystic has wonderful fried clams and terrific hot dogs. While you're there Kitchen Little has wonderful breakfasts. New Haven? Learn what real apizza is all about at Frank Pepe's. And for a look at hamburger history try Louis Lunch.
For Meriden you might want to give the unique steamed burgers at Ted's a try.

It's probably in oe of the links Michael listed, but I would just say that the hot (Connecticut-style) lobster rolls at Captain Scott's in New London were excellent when I went there a few years ago.

I see you're looking for South Kingstown.

The Mews Tavern is just what the doctor ordered. Great chicken nachos, fantastic burgers (Rhode Island has a very active burger culture) and most important of all, 69 craft beers on tap. Fair warning- the place is usually packed.

New Haven, CT -  Frank Pepe's, Sally's, or Modern Apizza.  ... Or Zuppardi's in West Haven.
New London/Mystic, CT -   Kamp Dog in New London.  SeaSwirl in Mystic.
South Kingstown, RI -  Phil's in the village of Wakefield (Wakefield is the main village in South Kingstown.)  There's also Spain in nearby Narragansett.  Not RoadFood per se, but a wonderful restaurant with Spanish and Portuguese dishes. 
Boston, MA -  Durgin Park. 
Amesbury, MA - If you are willing to drive an extra 45 minutes northeast of Amesbury, the Maine Diner in Wells, Maine is terrific.   You can also go about 30  minutes southeast of Amesbury to go to The Clam Box in Ipswich, MA.  Many people enjoy their fried clams.  
Tilton, NH -  Hart's Turkey Farm in Meredith, NH about 25 minutes northeast of Tilton.  Pretty good turkey dinner, and great house made pies (They are made in their building next door just uphill of the restaurant).  The blueberry pie is outstanding! 
Have a fun trip!

I recommend Annie's Overflow in Holderness, NH and Polly's Pancake parlor in Sugar Hill, NH  both are breakfast lunch places.
