The difference between new england and manhattan clam chowder is more than the ingredients, consistency, and ability to absorb a Sunday New York Times. Rectify this common misconception with today’s Groupon to Union Chowder House in South Weymouth. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of American fare, steaks, and seafood.
- For $35, you get $80 worth of American fare, steaks, and seafood for a group of four or more.<p>
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.
Mollie Maguires Pub
Though hopping the pond is no small feat, you can get metaphorically closer to the Emerald Isle with a meal at Mollie Maguires Pub. This homey respite from the blustering Atlantic winds serves hearty Irish meals for every meal of the day, starting with the Irish breakfast with eggs, bacon, beans, and toast and ending with a hearty shepherd's pie or Guinness-marinated beef tips. If you'd rather dig into a plate with classic New England cooking or recipes plucked from the continent, peruse the menu for clam chowder, baked stuffed scrod, chicken marsala, or baked shells. Guests will also find kid-friendly pizzas and burgers, a people-pleasing move more effective than serving pasta shaped like Tom Brady’s silhouette.
