Through a generous grant from the Local Agricultural and Seafood Act Grants Program of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, the Rhode Island Shellfishermen’s Association (RISA) and the Newport Restaurant Group (NRG) have joined efforts to promote the top neck clam, a locally harvested yet underutilized clam from local Rhode Island waters. Three Newport Restaurant Group locations (Hemenway’s Seafood Grill & Oyster Bar, Trio, and The Mooring Seafood Kitchen and Bar) are highlighting top necks on their menus and in a state-wide “Top Necks & Top Chefs” marketing campaign to increase awareness of the clams’ culinary viability.
