2005 BEST Chowder, Clam

Turner Fisheries Restaurant & Bar

Experimentation may be the spice of fine dining, but chowder demands tradition. To heretics inclined to load their chowder with corn, carrots, or—God forbid—Baileys Irish Cream, we say: Move west. Real Bostonians demand their chowder like Turner’s. That is, dense with clams, not flour; well stocked with potatoes; flavored with the merest hint of smoked pork; and awash in aromatic cream.
