We went out to dinner last and I had a wonderful clam chowder, I'm hoping this recipe will be close. According to my notes, it says that it tasted like it came from a restaurant! I hope so. I have another recipe at home that I know I've made before, which is pretty good. I'll have to wait until I get back home to share. This one say it came from Richard Simmons, so should be a healthy version.
