Companion’s Clam Chowder is the Catch of the Day

Dave Lowry, a contributing writer for St. Louis Magazine’s food blog Relish, wrote a glowing review of Companion and our New England Clam Chowder. As Lowry explains, clam chowder is serious food that is not easily mastered. Despite this steep challenge, Lowry was impressed by Companion’s take on the classic East Coast staple, especially appreciating the quality of our clam and our use of vegetables. Going a step further, he explains, “Companion’s chowder has the fabulously rich creamy broth that separates it from any kind of ordinary soup. The chowder here is like a spoonful of white silk on your tongue. Delectable it is. Low fat it most decidedly isn’t. What it also is, clearly, is a chowder that could easily hold its own, from Old Lyme to Old Orchard. No small feat.” To try our New England Clam Chowder for yourself, look for it on our list of daily soups and specials. To read the full review, click here.
