Best New England Clam Chowder

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?

  1. Not sure if it is really authentic, but I think the NE clam chowder at Pearl's Oyster Bar is excellent!

        i think that City Crab makes a freaking sensational clam chowder. I have it all the time there. Never fails to impress.

      2. Dean and Deluca IMHO has the best

        1. I agree with Pearl's, and I also love it at The Lobster Place at Chelsea Market. I wasn't as crazy about the version at Grand Central Oyster Bar.

            The she-crab soup at OYSTER in Grand Central is much tastier than their Clam Chowder. It's delicious.

          2. I am also from Boston and I agree with the Lobster Place in Chelsea Market. Although I have never had it at Pearl's.
