Obsessed with New England Clam Chowder

at203 | Nov 10, 2003 12:10 PM

I don't think this topic has been covered in a while. I am obssesed with New England Clam Chowder, and am looking for recommendations for the very best.

My current favorite may be a surprise, but I LOVE the stuff at Pret a Manger. It's thick and creamy and the clams are large and chewy. I tried the version at Grand Central Oyster Bar and was wildly disappointed - thin, watery and salty, with an insultingly small number of clams. Yesterday, I tried the version at the Lobster Place in Chelsea Market. Better that GCOB, but still didn't knock my socks off.

Please submit recommendations for New York's finest.
