The Seafoodie's Way to Georgetown, Maine
Cooked up by Susan Povich, co-founder of the Red Hook Lobster Pound, who indulges in a tasty (if somewhat circuitous) journey for her weekly crustacean pickup.
435 miles

1

Start the seafood quest in New Haven with a white clam pie ($12.50) from the brick oven at Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana (157 Wooster St., New Haven, Conn.).

2

At Brickley’s Ice Cream (921 Boston Neck Rd., Narragansett, R.I.), 45 flavors, like Povich’s favorites ginger and butter pecan, are all made on-site.

3

Green Animals Topiary Garden (380 Corys Ln., Portsmouth, R.I.) is a safari of 80 shrubs pruned in elephant, bear, and bird shapes overlooking Narragansett Bay.

4

The Rhode Island Red Monument (Main St. and Westport Harbor Rd., Little Compton, R.I.) celebrates the state bird, a hearty hen. Across the street, order an omelette at the Barn (13 Main St.).

5

The country’s tenderest, sweetest, most full-bellied clams are in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Get them at the Clam Box (246 High St.).

6

Tour and taste for free at the Smuttynose Brewery (225 Heritage Ave., Portsmouth, N.H.; 603-436-4026 for reservations), then pick up a sixer of chamomile-infused Summer Weizen ($9) or a Champagne bottle of Short-Batch beers ($15).

7

For a Maine-brewed Allagash white ($5) and wood-fired mussels ($12) at Portland’s venerable Fore Street Restaurant (288 Fore St.; 207-775-2717), book a table in advance or walk in for a bar seat.

8

Crack into lobsters fresh off the boat on Five Islands Lobster Co.’s dock (1447 Five Islands Rd.), then crash at the thirteen-room Grey Havens Inn (from $160; 96 Seguinland Rd.; 207-371-2616), which has a wraparound porch and oceanfront views.
