wierd chowder

Francesca Sipala Oct 30, 2001 04:51 PM

I know chowder is often the subject of these boards, but I have a different question.

Can anyone recommend a place that does an un-typical clam chowder? My friend and I have this ongoing debate, and I'm looking throw some fuel on the fire. Basically, I'm just looking for a place that throws in ingredients you wouldn't expect to find in the chowder pot, or chowders that aren't really chowders at all, but more, experiments.....

thanks in advance.

    Kingfish hall's chowder is a very thin broth with saffron (maybe?) and has clams in their shells along with other oddities.

      Haven't bought lunch there in a while, but Cardullo's used to make something they called Rhode-Island-style chowder (I think this was the name - whatever, it wasn't their usual white brew). It had a clear broth base, but was richly clammy, and had big quahogs chopped up. I recall it being intensely satisfying on cold days in Harvard Square.
