First time ever having whitefish chowder and the Cookery did not disappoint. Creamy and sublime with nice chunks of beautiful whitefish. Definitely try a bowl (or cup) if you're there.

Not as good since it opened after the fire. Swanky décor means higher prices and we miss all the open faced sandwiches they used to offer. On a better note - they still have the best whitefish chowder we have found.
