Howdy folks-- So I'm from Boston originally, and recently moved here. Question for y'all - where in the city can the best New England Clam Chowder be had? I've had it at City Crab, and Grand Central Oyster Bar; any other thoughts?
As a native Bostonian, I can confidently say you are only going to be happy at Mary's Fish Camp and Pearl's. They are the closest mimic of Legal Sea Foods, No-Name Restaurant, and the Cape Cod clam shacks.
I've had NE clam chowder in all the places mentioned above except for Dock's. I recommend Track's in Penn Station. Sort of off topic, the shellfish soup, Central American version at Honduras Maya in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.
