The Aftermath of Chowderfest

February 6, 2018

You know how it goes… Chowderfest came and went in a flash, but I’m proud to say that achieved my goal (plus TWO!)

That’s right… 12 chowders down and I survived. Probably thanks to my Chowderfest Crew (my sis and boyfriend) who shared the chowders with me to avoid dairy overload.

Here’s a look at the 12 chowders I tried:



Boca Bistro

Comfort Kitchen


Sinclair/Buddha Noodle


The Parting Glass

Fitzy’s Fork in the Road

Fish at 30 Lake

Farmers Hardware

The Brook Tavern

While I didn’t try any of the winners, I did think that Comfort Kitchen & Farmer’s Harware deserved some recognition.

Comfort Kitchen’s was SO good and unique. It was a bacon, beer & brussels sprout chowder that was lighter but super flavorful and even had some mustard seeds in it. YUM.

Anyway, here are the actual winners if you haven’t seen them yet:

People’s Choice: Thirsty Owl Saratoga
Best on Broadway: Thirsty Owl Saratoga
Best Off Broadway: Courtyard by Marriott Saratoga Springs
Best Non-Downtown: PJ’s BAR-B-QSA
Best Newcomer: Dizzy Chicken Wood Fired Rotisserie
Best Dessert Chowder: Ravenous
Best made with Saranac: Bookmakers Restaurant & Lounge

Congrats to all of this years winners! Did you have a favorite chowder not listed above? Share them with us in the comments section!
