Duke Moscrip, the restaurant's owner and founder, is pleased to share his signature specialty with chowder enthusiasts. A restaurateur for more than 40 years, Duke first developed a taste for clams at his New England grandfather's dinner table. Duke didn't particularly love grandpa's chowder, which was brothy and full of robust clam flavors, but Grandpa made it clear that if Duke wanted the chocolate éclairs sitting in the middle of the dinner table then he'd eat that chowder and learn to like it. Indeed, Duke developed an astute taste for clams back then. Many years later, when Seattle was hosting a massive chowder competition in the 1980s, Duke and his then chef rose to the challenge and submitted their carefully crafted chowder.
Duke's clam chowder won that competition by a landslide three years in a row. The creamy clam chowder has been a fixture on his menus ever since. Naturally, Duke has some rock solid opinions on how to make a good clam chowder. Here are a few that form the foundation:
So, if you need a chowder fix and happen to be in the Seattle area on November 13th, head to Duke's for a free sample and some lively chowder chat!
