What is the name of that Newport restaurant...

...with the good chowder? Okay, that sounds like a few places, and it could be the place I'm thinking of is not good in your opinion. It was definitely a distant second to Scales and Shells, which the man and I very much loved, but here's what I remember:
- NOT ON THAMES. I think it was a parallel block, one up (using "up" to mean away from the water in which Banister's Wharf and others sat) on a VERY SHORT BLOCK up from a small park.
- Not as far over as Marlborough St. in one direction. In the other direction, not as far as the liquor/wine store (and road that follows the beach towards the Fort)
- Not remotely fancy. More like bar food.
- We saw signs that bands played there at night. Might have been more of a NIGHTLIFE spot.
- There were rampant officially historic buildings around. Of course, this is true of most of the town, but we saw a particularly closely packed few right around this restaurant on a perpendicular street where we parked.

Anyway, we loved this chowder, and I think the nice waitress said we could order it online, but I'm not having any luck tracking down the name from memory or from browsing through lists. Any help would be very appreciated!
