Lynn – For those who might not be aware, next Wednesday is “National Clam Chowder Day.” And to celebrate, the Blue Ox Restaurant on Oxford Street will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of their chowder to My Brother’s Table.
Not only does My Brother’s Table provide nourishing meals for the hungry, the nonprofit organization delivers meals to home-bound individuals and at-risk seniors 365 days a year.
Created by chef Matt O’Neil, The Blue Ox’s clam chowder is a twist on the classic New England version that’s packed with fresh local clams, crisp applewood-smoked bacon and laced with just a touch of Tabasco for a slight kick. Perfect for clam chowder aficionados and guests looking to keep warm during the wicked winter weather, The Blue Ox’s clam chowder is a delicious way to celebrate everyone’s favorite food holiday, while keeping the needs of hungry neighbors top of mind.
It has been a staple on the North Shore dining scene since opening in 2009.
With a focus on locally sourced premium ingredients from the top purveyors in the area, and a unique wine and cocktail program, the restaurant boasts creative takes on American classics enhanced by a diverse selection of locally distilled spirits, small production wines and beers.
The Blue Ox is open for dinner Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5-10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5-10:30 p.m.; and Sunday from 4-9 p.m.
