Is this a tourist trap? Yes, it most certainly is. But they make good clam chowder, and we’re not going to look a sourdough bread bowl in the face and say no thank you.

Beware - the Pepto Bismol-looking smoked salmon chowder is heavy on the cream cheese and doesn’t really taste great, so stick to the clam.
