Quahog’s Seafood Shack
Adam Erace has nothing bad to say about Quahog’s Seafood Shack in Stone Harbor, a seafood restaurant with a conscience.
This isnâ€™t the place for farmed salmon and Chilean sea bass. Instead executive chef/owner Lucas Manteca and his chef de cuisine Carlos Barros prepare Jersey gems like blue crabs, oysters and Great Sound steamers as well as the â€œtrash fishâ€ nobody wants to take to the prom. Whiting, pollock, Brazilian pacu and Atlantic croakerâ€”a buttery weakfish relative roasted wholeâ€”are streaked with bright chimichurri and served alongside peppery watercress salad.
