I'm a complete sucker for clam chowder. Whenever I see it on a restaurant menu, I order it. If McDonald's had it, I would eat at McDonald's constantly.

It should be thick but not gluteny, full of large pieces of fresh clams. It should have firm chunks of potatoes, not ones that dissolve on your tongue. And maybe a sprinkling of fresh herbs -- tarragon, chives...

Here in L.A., Providence has a great version. What other restaurants serve great clam chowder, and what makes it so good?
