Ed's Chowderhouse- a report

Some hits, some misses. We popped in for a light dinner and it was busy but not packed. The room is LOUD, both the bar and the dining area. At 6:30pm we had to lean in to hear each other and the waiter- across the slightly too large 2 top table. I had the Manhattan stlye Blue Crab Chowder- slightly spicy, lots of crab- very tasty. My dining mate had the "Loaded Shellfish Chowder" which was very good except for the fact it was not loaded. It was a 1/2 portion in a little black kettle. Had they filled it even 3/4 it would have been a more reasonable size. The beet salad was average, and the spicy chopped salad w/crispy calamari was more flavorful and calamari was well prepared. The bread basket had one warm delicious chive buttermilk biscuit, one cold but fresh Parker House roll, and one rock hard baguette stick. It was BEYOND stale- it should never have made it into the basket. Service is attentive, if slightly flustered (opening night jitters perhaps) They'll do well across the street from Lincoln Center, but the tiny portions and the volume of the room will keep us from hurrying back...
