Gold Winner Esquire Restaurant
Silver Winner Durty Nelly’s
Bronze Winner 2 Doors Down Food + Wine
A sixth win for the Esquire’s chowder is not really a surprise to us at this point. The welcoming and cozy diner atmosphere at the Bedford Highway beauty is known for its comfort food, and what’s more comforting that a big bowl of liquid love? Chowder here comes in three styles—lobster, fish and seafood—all of which follow recipes nearly double the age of this readers’ survey. One look at the fresh haddock, clams and scallops bobbing in a buttery, creamy base and you’re going to wish you had two spoons.
