  Clam chowder
by goingsolo

Clam Chowder is famous in New England and Boston is no exception. Every year, the city holds a clam chowder festival and selects the best of the bunch.

To get a bowl of great clam chowder, ask a local resident for his/her suggestion on the best place for chowder. Enjoying a steaming bowl of chowder is something not to be missed, especially in winter.

Places to get clam chowder:

Joes American Bar and Grill: 279 Dartmouth St (listed as a previous award winner. At least, that's what the sign in the window said)*

Captain Parker's Pub, Route 28, West Yarmouth, MA

Atlantic Fish Company, 751 South Boylson Street

Directions: Commonwealth Ave, Newbury St., Boylston St. from Public Garden to Mass Ave.
