Ditch Plains

So we decided to have dinner at Ditch Plains to celebrate the 4th of July and was it ever good! First of all the space is nice. It has an open airy feeling about it with nice big booths to chill out in. We started with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and some clam strips to start. The clams were fried nicely with just enough crunch to them.

For mains we got their signature dish which you won't find on the menu- the Ditch Dogs. Behold them in all their cheesy, greasy glory:






Two hot dogs topped with mac & cheese and crispy french fries! Oh yes- it was as good as it looks. I would like to re-create this at home but that could be a dangerous endeavor. Sooo good!

For our other dishes we got the special sandwich of the day the Shrimp Po' Boy:


Then we got the lobster roll. This was good but probably one of my least favorite in NYC. It had a lot of spices in it. We were trying to figure out what they were, maybe celery root and paprika? Not sure but the spices over took the great taste of the lobster. The sweet potato chips were pretty good though. Better then I thought they would be.


Then we also got a Caesar salad. Which was really tasty. Sorry the picture is so blurry. My camera kept heading towards the Ditch Dogs (was that my camera or my mouth... )



To end they gave us a bunch of Salt Water Taffy with the check. I thought that was a nice touch. All in all a great meal. We will be back to try some of the other menu items that looked fantastic- especially their clam chowder- yum!
