READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by Kit_Kat

Noah's Ark was a landmark restaurant in St. Charles, Missouri. The restaurant was built in the shape of an ark and had lifesize animal statues inside and out. My mom worked at the Noah's Ark Hotel for years. Time marches on, the restaurant and hotel have both been closed for many years and finally the ark was torn down, for new construction. The good news is that the animals will continue to be a part of the new establishments that will be built.Enjoy the wonderful chowder.

I grew up dinning at "Noah's Ark" we always had clam chowder. The restaurant was an " icon" in West county. I wish they were still there! I moved here to the northwest and will be sharing this recipe with my friends.
