Not All Chowders are Created Equal
While I think you'll find the best New England clam chowdah right here in Boston, everyone has their favorite location to slurp it. Do you like it thick enough to hold a spoon upright or thinner with more broth, served in a bread bowl and loaded with clams and potatoes? B&G Oysters, Ned Devines, Legal Sea Food and Turner Fisheries are a few of the top contenders, but I'm going to recommend you make your own decision. With many award winning varieties, it's on just about every menu. Try a bowl at least once during your visit and taste a northeast specialty.
