TastingTable: The Argonaut's steamed seafood specials rock

Tasting Table has this delectable piece on the Argonaut's new steamer specials, steamed peeler shrimp, and Virginia Littleneck clams.  We've only tried the shrimp so far, but Tasting Table's piece has us salivating to get back for more soon.  This is a great addition to H Street and to the Argonaut's offerings.  Kudos to the Argonaut -- a long-time neighborhood favorite -- on continuing to get better in a variety of ways, including this and more recently a carryout menu, which makes most of their dinner menu available to take home Sunday-Thursday nights.  The Argonaut's "steamer pots" menu follows.
