Reader: No chowder? Clam up about the best seafood restaurants!

Denver may be landlocked, but our ship occasionally comes in -- loaded with fresh fish. Yesterday we served up Denver's five best seafood restaurants.

Says UncleDave8:

I can totally back this list. Refreshing change from most Denver diners' choices like The Fresh Fish Company, Pappadeaux, Oceanaire and Ocean Prime.

Still, there were quibbles:

Says Mike:

New England Style Seafood is much needed. I really really miss Fried Clams Strips and great Clam Chowder. Please make it happen someone!

And then there's this from Newschaser:

Fried clam "strips" are not real New England seafood ... you'd want full belly clams and steamers with necks ... strips are garbage deep-water shellfish cut up and breaded commercially, not real clams plucked out of the sand. Think Essex clams. And a can of Moxie.

Have any suggestions for clams -- fried, Essex or otherwise? Post them, and any other favorite seafood spots, below, or joint the discussion of best seafood restaurants already under way here.
