NVM Review

(May 2008)

By Warren Rojas

For a soup and sandwich combo like no other, dive first into the East Coast chowda ($13.95), a seafood-rich brew boasting abundant oysters, cod, scallops, potatoes, onions and corn. Once you’ve come back up for air, tackle the surf-and-turf club ($10.95), offering alternating layers of thinly sliced sirloin, jumbo shrimp, bacon, lettuce, tomato and a zippy dressing.

(June/July 2007)

By Warren Rojas

A steaming bowl of East Coast chowda ($13.95) is no mere soup-and-sandwich sideshow attraction. The potent stew is brimming with so many oysters, bay scallops, chunks of select fish (typically cod), potatoes, red onions, celery and corn, staff members insist, “it’s a meal.” Amen to that.
