Chowderfest Contestant Closeup will take a look at 2018’s contestants, chef’s and recipes. Chowderfest will take place on September 29th & 30th, 2018.
Bistro 14 is Long Beach Island’s only bistro and offers a french-inspired menu with an award winning raw bar. For this year’s Chowderfest, they will be serving up their Manhattan chowder, which has won first place three times. Led by owner and Head Chef, Richard Vaughn, the restaurant is hoping to bring home another win!
Bistro 14 opened in 2004 and is located inside Bay Village, right on the Barnegat Bay. Their fine dining options vary from elevated seafood dishes, to traditional french entrees. Richard Vaughn shared, “I wanted to make a restaurant that was different and unique on this island. Everything here was either Italian or everyone else served pasta.” BYOB and make a reservation at: www.bistro14lbi.com.
