First, I want to assure everyone I am a loyal fan of the Sox, Patriots, and Celtics.
Second, while I do like a good cream based Clam Chowder, I still yearn for what is properly called Zuppa di Vongole, but commonly referred to as Manhattan Clam Chowder. Don't bother to correct me, I know it's not a real chowder. But I still love and miss it, even after 20 + years up here.
I've had enough bad renditions (Campbell's Vegetable Soup with Snow's chopped clams added)
to understand why even New Englanders open minded enough to try it, probably don't like it.
Has anyone had a decent bowl of it recently? Here, or anywhere between Boston and New Jersey?
