The hot sun didn’t effect the demand for warm chowder at this year’s Greenport Chowder Festival.

Claudio’s Restaurant took first place for best clam chowder in the East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation fundraiser and competition, held for the first time outside of the organization’s annual fall maritime festival. Alure in Southold won in the “other chowders” category.

See the photos below and read more about the event on The Suffolk Times website.
