Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Last week Mark Antonation visited the Chowder Room at 560 South Broadway, to talk with owners Matt and Carrie Stein about how two New Yorkers (and former high-school sweethearts) wound up in landlocked Denver with a seafood restaurant. And a seafood restaurant that local diners are definitely sweet on, judging by this comment from Jan:

The Chowder Room is one of my favorite "secret" restaurants, but now word is out...

Making a meal here even sweeter is the current deal on Maine lobster, selling at market price — currently $22 per pound. Find more details on the Chowder Room website. Have you been to the Chowder Room? What's your favorite seafood spot in Denver?

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
