Clam chowder at Black Pearl is the dish every visitor should try, because it’s classic, one of a kind, and an unshakable part of Newport’s cultural heritage. Its current chef, Daniel Knerr, who trained at the French Laundry as well as New York’s now-shuttered La Côte Basque, ensures the kitchen never strays too far from its yachtsman’s roots: hearty New York sirloin, lobster, Nantucket scallops, and of course, piping hot bowls of the restaurant’s rich, creamy chowder.
