12 of The Cape & Islands Must-Try Chowders, Winter 2013

View as Map

We seemed to have misplaced our invite to yesterday's inaugural luncheon, thus missing out on the tasty sounding Lobster Tails with a New England Clam Chowder Sauce. As consolation, we'll just have consume a few cups (or quarts) of our local chowdah. Care to join? Here's a guide to 12 of the Cape & Islands must-try chowders. No worries if you're over the bridge, a couple of these establishments are Chowdah 2.0 and have online stores.
