  1. Curry House...my kid says its her favorite.

    1. The best corn I've ever had at a restaurant was at "Fresh Corn Grill" in Westwood. I would venture an educated guess that their Corn Chowder might be as well; afterall, it's what they specialize in (click on the PDF "Take-Out Menu"):

        Yes, the corn chowder is excellent at Fresh Corn Grill. Reminiscent of the chowder at The Ivy, where (I've heard) the owner worked previously.

      2. The Ivy on Robertson, hands down. I know people are divided about the restaurant on the board but there is no beating their corn chowder. It is silky, full of corn and quite spicy. I love it.

          1. I like the one at Sonora Cafe on La Brea a lot.

            1. I agree with the Ivy... a bowl of corn chowder and a salad is a great lunch.

              1. I just enjoyed Vons Signature Select Cravin Crab Corn Chowder that can be found in their store's soup-bar section. This is one of the new flavors that was recently added to their wonderful line of restaurant-quality soups. They can be bought in refrigerated containers or can be scooped into different-size bowls from their self-serve hot-soup section (and help yourself to free samples!).

                1. The first Corn Chowder I ever had was at Mimi's Cafe. I know it's a chain and I am not a corn chowder expert but I liked it. I get that when I am not in the mood for the French Onion.
