As Autumn makes a shy appearance this year, following a warm and welcoming summer, we have been stopping by Billy's more frequently for some clam chowder. Cup or Bowl, it only depends on our hunger at the time. This chowder is the real New England Style. Hearty pieces of clam, delicious chowder base, and nothing artificial in it. As a native of Northern New England who has roamed and rambled, I will say this chowder is the standard. No, I don't put crackers or anything in my chowder, because I will not tamper with perfection.
