Union Chowder House's chef highlights the fruits of the sea with a lunch-and-dinner menu that brims with freshly netted seafood. Ceramic vessels deliver new england clam, seafood, or fish chowder ($3.99/cup, $4.99/bowl) to tables of eager diners, cradling reservoirs of stew with depths best measured in leagues. Mountains of fresh haddock rise from the fisherman's platter ($15.99), sporting scallop boulders and whole-clam caves that conceal savory treasures such as Michelangelo's lost butter sculptures. Locally produced blue-cheese butter melts slowly atop 12-ounce sirloin steaks ($17.99), wandering over every bite with the same curiosity as the plum-tomato cream sauce that meanders atop the wild-mushroom ravioli ($15.99).
White shutters frame multipane windows at the recently remodeled Union Chowder House, imbuing the colonial-style eatery with a cozy, home-like atmosphere. A white chimney puffs busily as chefs churn out fresh eats, emitting a stormy gray color that whispers of the seas from whence the catch of the day came.
