Well, if it’s good enough for governor general Adrienne Clarkson and her consort (they drop in every time they’re in town), it’s good enough for you: Fries & Co scares a whale of a win this year. Fresh fish, light batter, excellent fries: good eats. Why so good in a town full of fish? “Because we change our fat almost daily,” says manager Sharon Ross, “and we have exceptional batter and very fresh haddock.” If you’re getting takeout, splurge $1 for a mini bottle of ketchup. So cute.
