Jamaica Plain food writer Rachel Lebeaux reports from Chowderfest, held Wednesday at Bella Luna/The Milky Way.

There were four types of chowder:

  • A creamy New England clam chowder
  • A smoky Manhattan chowder
  • A coconut-spiked corn chowder
  • A sumptuous potato and sausage chowder

In addition to the chowder, this last Bella Luna patio event of the season included local breweries, among them:

Lebeaux counts Bella Luna among the best patio dining options in Boston.

She’s also got the scoop on the best clam chowder in the city as a whole.
