The Commons Lunch
48 Commons Way
Little Compton, RI
Most Rhode Islanders don’t want their chowder sullied with milk. A base of straight clam-juice broth, plus a few onions and potatoes, maybe some diced salt pork, and plenty of shucked quahogs — that’s chowder. Typical accompaniments are clam cakes or jonnycakes, both in good form at The Commons.
