Scorfano, its a fish from the Med, Italians will pay a fortune for it, Monk Fish, Gurnard, Rascasse.

for me, it's a close race between new england and manhattan clam chowders. bouillabaisse is a close third.

i make a pretty good manhattan clam chowder, but i've had some amazing new england style clam chowders made with fresh local cream and milk when in vermont.

I went down to the demonstration, to get my fair share of abuse.

Yesterday my fiancee and I had a bowl of Seafood Chowder that was amazing! It was a cream based chowder with shrimp, scallops and fish. We had also ordered an appetizer platter with alligator tail, coconut shrimp and clams that was also very good, but the next time we go, we'll bypass the appetizers and most likely order a second bowl of the chowder!

We ate at The Outback Steak and Oyster Bar of Branson, Missouri (an independent restaurant - NOT part of the Outback Steakhouse national chain).
