I have no hesitation to order my tuna rare or clams on the half shell. Their policy is to inspect all their shellfish for bacteria. The buy their fish directly at the docks, demand the last-day catch and monitor its temperature every 30 seconds along the way to the restaurant. That’s about as thorough as you can get.”
