Tony’s Seafood Restaurant will be competing at the 30th annual Great Chowder Cook-Off Saturday. Tony’s Seafood is the only restaurant in the state of Florida competing in the cook-off this year which is set to take place in Cedar Key, Florida. Manager Diana Bible says she believes in the chowder and is confident that it will win for the third year in a row.
“This past year when we went back we figured we had it in the bag, but this year it is our third time to win so it’s a really big deal,” she said.
Bible adds that a lot of work is involved in preparing the clam chowder because everything is made from scratch. The unique spices have made such a popular name for the clam chowder that is has been shipped all over the continental U.S.
