Must-Have: New England Clam Chowder Soup

The Albright is a restaurant in Santa Monica with fresh produce (and we mean Costs) seafood on the pier since 1977. Their New England clam chowder soup is rich and creamy and works well in a bowl of sourdough bread. If you prefer to eat it while strolling along the beach, it can be taken away. However, the best way to experience Albright is enjoying a lobster roll in their outdoor restaurant while listening to the waves crash against the pier. Be sure to browse their wine list: husband and wife duo Yunnie and Greg Morena have a generous selection, including farmer’s market sangria.
