Best Chowder

Esquire Restaurant

Gold Winner Esquire Restaurant

Silver Winner jane’s on the common

Bronze Winner Gio Restaurant


It’s been three years since Esquire snagged the hotly contested prize, but they’re back on top with their tasty and traditional chowder options. There’s fish chowder, lobster chowder or corn chowder for those who aren’t fish fans. Oh, and lucky for you, the seafood chowder—the one packed with haddock, scallops, lobster and clams—is now available every day of the week, instead of just Fridays. Send out the alarms! “When we first won the award a few years ago, I said the same thing: it’s made from pure, simple, basic ingredients, with nice fresh seafood. No shortcuts,” says supervisor Nora Harrington. “And a little bit of love always helps.” We like love. A lot. So take your pick, grab a spoon and chow(der) down.
