The posts from our east coast breteren are killing me. All that lovely shellfish. Ohio has nothing at least in the SW/Dayton area. We used to have the Shuckin' shack but they losed.
You might find cooked blue or dungeness at Meijers and Dorthy lane but no dining places. A bucket of steamers or a crab fest complete with mallets and newspaper. Im sure they could do a heck of a biz.
We have shrimp, scallops(rare), and finny fish but the other stuff is not to be found. I know we have a ton of Dayton denizens here. How many would go to a clam or crab shack?
Even when I was cooking in Denver we had some great places. Tats 3 times as far from the coast.
Driving along the bay to a lobster pound overlooking the water would be a treat. Enjoy your gifts folks.

We live in Steubenville and I totally agree with you. My friends here tell me this is a "meat-eating" state. That is one of the reasons we are going to buy a retirement home in Florida, on the Gulf Coast. Having had access to blue crabs and having attended many a crab feast, neither of us can stand the thought of not doing that anymore! Roadfood or otherwise, the best of all meals is a dozen or so steamed crabs and some cold beer.

In the Columbus area I can get live soft shell crabs and soft shell clams, or steamers. Also always available are both bay and sea scallops. The shof shells and steamers are expensive as heck, though.

There really isnt enough meat to bother with on the Zebras'. If you get enough of them you can make a delightful PCD/Mercury broth.
