Rhode Island clam chowder in Ct
Tue, 06/14/11 6:39 PM
Though I live in Ct, I love Rhode Island style clam chowder with the clear broth. In the last month I have had it in four southern Ct restaurants which were formerly renowned for their recipe. What happened? Did the chowder gods decree that monstrous chunks of potato are now required? The best of the four was Blue Cottage in Branford...flavorful but too much red skin potato . Next, Westbrook Lobster in Wallingford...fairly flavorful but too much potato and minimal clam. Lenny's in Branford...not much flavor and again, too much potato. Lastly, Fishtale in Madison...strong flavor of dishwater and not hot.
Anyone have any recommendations for a decent bowl in the area?
