Faneuil Hall Marketplace
1 Faneuil Hall Marketplace
Tons tourists here with huge cameras, so I blended in just fine. Came here for lunch with the family. Tip for next time: park at 75 State St. parking garage because you get validation with purchase from any of the vendors at Faneuil, versus the garage on Clinton St. (which is next door) does not validate.
We don’t come here that often unless we have out-0f-towners with us, so we figure a place with “Chowda” in the name must be pretty legit. Altho lines are long (except for maybe the Thai place and Indian place), everything moves along quite nice. And if you can’t find seats right away, give it a minute and you’ll see someone get up from a table. There is also standing areas with tables, and an eating area upstairs.
i don’t know why someone would bother with something else besides clam chowder when you come to Boston
i started to drool when I saw this window case.
The bread was alright (sourdough I believe). The soup was ok too, nothing spectacular. I’m pretty sure Faneuil Hall is here mainly for the tourists and so they don’t mind over-paying for Boston’s famous clam chowder.
