Often thought of as the New England clam chowder, this creamy version is well represented at places as diverse as inns and clam shacks. The Bite’s version is nicely herbed and thickened (not floury), and chock-full of hard-shell clams. Take it to the beach and eat it while looking out at Menemsha Bight.
