Destination: Two Little Fish a Clam Shack in Westerly, Rhode Island

Posted on August 12, 2018

Write-up & Photos by Jacqueline Bennett Thanks to its new location, I discovered Two Little Fish, a clam shack on Atlantic Avenue in Westerly, Rhode Island, this summer – what a great find! It has been voted ‘Best Seafood’ for “seventeen years running” in the Westerly Sun online reader’s poll, as announced on the sign out front it’s Atlantic Avenue locale. Relocated from Granite Street where Tim Brennan and Kevin Urbonas started the business in 1997, Two Little Fish is so good that customers willingly, eagerly, wait in long lines to enjoy the food.   Seriously, Two Little Fish has been in business for 21 years but in the past I must have overlooked it as I was focused on going to other restaurants located…

    By Jacqueline Bennett   Shot these photos in color in Westerly, Rhode Island Friday evening, July 20. Decided to experiment with the saturation, and do a simple black & white pictorial.

Though only a short distance traveling down Atlantic Avenue from buff bodies strutting their stuff, shops, restaurants and even a carousel, it feels a world apart. Serenity reigns here.   The alluring jetty of rocks seems like a sea siren beckoning one to the water. It is a popular fishing and viewing spot. Careful footing is required every step of the way! Visitors can often be seen having trekked to the outer end of the jetty. Motor boats make their way from nearby docks out into the mighty Atlantic Ocean along…

Destination: The Andrea – Misquamicut Beach Westerly, Rhode Island

Posted on June 7, 2014

Write-Up & Photos by Jacqueline Bennett newsandviewsjb What has been carried over from the former Hotel Andrea and restaurant is one of the most appealing aspects – a beautiful stone fireplace. For anyone who remembers what stood before Hurricane Sandy decimated the site two years ago, the replacement Andrea Seaside Restaurant & Beach Bar is a stark comparison. The good news is that any remnant, whatsoever abides, of what has been one of the most popular spots along the Atlantic Avenue strip. The Andrea was never elegant but it was pleasing, a curious combination of upscale elements blended with honky-tonk. Gone is the multi-story hotel and the familiar summertime sight of colorful, beach towels drying over balcony rails outside the guest rooms. Gone is…
