With the intention of “bringing Montauk to the heart of Manhattan,” Ed's Chowder House, located in the historic Empire Hotel, delivers the bounty of the Eastern shoreline to the Upper West Side. Ed's Chowder House serves up a refined yet unpretentious take on regional seafood favorites in a breezy, casual atmosphere.
Alongside the namesake variety of hot and savory chowders, including Sweet Corn, New England-style Clam, Manhattan-style Blue Crab and the signature Shellfish Chowder, the menu offers a wide variety of options ranging from elegantly composed favorites like Scallop Ravioli with white wine sauce and herbs or Peppered Tuna Steak Frites with herb butter to simply grilled selections of seafood, steaks and chops. In the Chowder Bar, more casual favorites like lobster rolls, Jeff & Zach's burger, crab cakes, and fish n’ chips take center stage along with refreshing cocktails, a carefully selected handful of local craft brews and all-day dining menu from 11:30am daily.
