UNO CHICAGO GRILL TAKES SECOND PLACE AT 22nd ANNUAL CHOWDERFEST

First place winner: Houston’s – Boston, MA (Faneuil Hall)
Second place winner: Uno Chicago Grill - Boston, MA

BOSTON, (July 6, 2003) – Boston’s City Hall Plaza was host to over 11,000 enthusiastic chowder-samplers earlier today at Boston Harborfest’s 22nd Annual Chowderfest. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Boston residents and visitors sampled and voted for their favorite New England style clam chowder recipe from top New England area restaurants that were selected to participate.

The 22nd Annual Chowderfest marked the first year that restaurants outside the greater Boston area were invited to compete for the title “Boston’s Best Chowder”. All of the participating restaurants were highly recommended by Chowderfest enthusiasts who sent the Boston Harborfest committee their nominations.

This year’s participants included:

Uno Chicago Grill, Boston
The Farragut House, Boston
Houston’s, Boston
The Cliff House Resort and Spa, Ogunquit, ME
Lobster Pot

Although each restaurant served New England style clam chowder, each recipe was very different in both flavor and texture. Several were smooth and creamy while others were thick and chunky. Although the decision must have been a very difficult one, it was Houston’s in Faneuil Hall who was voted “Boston’s Best Chowder” and who was awarded the 2003 Chowderfest Chowder Bowl.

The day’s entertainment included performances by the Middlesex County Volunteer Fifes & Drums, His Majesty’s First Regiment of Foot, the Dixieland Strollers, as well as entertainment by Fly By Night, which included jugglers and a mime. A misting tent kept both attendees and participants cool under the blazing sun and ninety degree temperature.

Chowderfest was one of the over 200 events that took place during the 22nd Annual Boston Harborfest. “A Grand Concert to Celebrate Liberty” will conclude Boston Harborfest 2003 ceremonies at 45 School City, in the Courtyard at Old City Hall.
