While you’re waiting for your epic lobster roll, dip a spoon into some chowder at one of North End’s best seafood restaurants. It’s made with cherrystones from Wellfleet and is thinner than a classic chowder (but not as thin as Rhode Island-style). Salt pork, clam stock and béchamel round out the flavor profile of this comforting dish.
We’d be hard pressed to name a city in the US that has more clam chowder options than Boston, and everyone has their favorite—just ask any local! From traditional-style chowders at casual pubs to elevated takes at fine seafood restaurants to modern twists at chic spots, there’s a bowl for everyone. For additional seafood options, visit the best seafood restaurants in Boston or the best oysters bars in Boston, or be sure to grab one of the best lobster rolls in Boston.
