  1. I have to say, though I love hardshell crab, I don't care a bit for the softshell variety. It's mostly a texture thing. The not quite soft shell and the somewhat mushy interior is really off-putting to me.
  2. After a spectacular sail last Friday we docked at Ferry Point Marina to explore their restaurant the Point Crab House. At 3pm happy hour was booming as it was one of the first really nice days out and they open garage doors onto the water. We each had a "Backyard Lemonade" to go as it was so crowded we decided to retreat back to the boat for snacks and return for dinner. Drinks were really good and I can see why many folks were downing these as well as the many types of crushes they make. At this time the parking lots was a zoo and a line was forming for the privilege of waiting to eat
  3. The Point Crab House 410-544-5448 700 Mill Creek Rd. Arnold, Maryland 21012 info@thepointcrabhouse.com Last Saturday, given how it was still nice out, we decided to go to Annapolis to get some crabs {any jokes about Kay going to see her relatives or being a cannibal surely would never cross my mind!} We usually head to Harris Crab House, preferring it to Cantler's, but we didn't want to fight possible pre world series crowds. So with a little googling, we found Anna Spiegels recommendation of the Point. The drive was an hour from Annandale adjacent and the final bit of it thru rat
  4. The Cheshire Crab is like that too - driving past houses, take a right at the small sign. It is connected to a marina - last time I was there, I parked in the boat yard beneath two boats, one above the other on those giant racks, the ones that look like cubby holes but big enough for boats. My Mini Cooper looked like it could be crushed at any second beneath the hulking hulls. Have fun on your quest!
  5. In the ice rink plaza over in Ashburn, Ford's Fish Shack is the third restaurant in the same space. Food-wise, of my first try, it's already blown the previous two out of the water. One of my coworkers had gone on and on about how much he liked the fish and chips. A buddy of mine and I went there for lunch. I had the lobster roll ($17), and if you use Mark Slater's definition of how trite it may be from another thread, well, this one is NOT trite. It was DELICIOUS. The lobster was nice and firm, the roll buttery, the combination with the just right amount of dressing fantastic. It came with s
  6. Trying to organize a group dinner, and got too big. Wanted to do crabs, which seemed possible to have a walk-in group of 12, but now it's 20, and don't want to risk not getting seated. Any ideas? I don't love Chart House or Blackwall Hitch, but it seems like those will be the easiest to reserve 10 days out. Thanks S
  7. I've always thought Bethesda Crab House was fabulous in-season, but I've never tried to go out-of-season. Might be worth giving them a call.
  8. Brought two of my younger colleagues to dinner here last week. We were looking for a casual spot that was fairly lively and had good food. One of my colleagues read somewhere that the Mermaid Inn on MacDougal was something of a "baby bernardin", so off we went. First of all, the notion of comparing the Mermaid Inn to Le Bernardin, baby, toddler, adolescent or full grown version is crazy. Totally different set up and vibe. This is a casual restaurant with a bustling oyster bar that makes a solid effort to turn out good seafood dishes at a fair price. Our group started with "escargot style"
  9. "Don't Eat Dungeness Crab, California Health Department Warns" by Nanette Asimov and Paolo Lucchesi on sfgate.com
  10. Looking to pick-up some live crabs this weekend to cook at the house - maybe 2 to 3 dozen. Any good sources in the area (Bethesda) to pick some up. We used to get from Cameron's in Bethesda but they are gone.
  11. I'm writing a piece for DCist on Dungeness crab, inspired by the one I bought at whole foods on Sunday. I spoke to several distributors in Oregon and CA, who noted that everything on the east coast right now is from Alaska, since the CA, WA, and OR season is delayed and is just underway. Of the three options for buying them-- frozen, fresh, and live--the safest bet, according to them, is frozen or cooked fresh, then shipped, since the live ones allegedly need to be cooked right away so they're not listless, turning the meat bitter. Where have you bought fresh (cooked where caught and shipped
  12. I was curious about Wild Country Seafood after it was written up in the Washingtonian Kliman Chat. When I looked on the map it appeared to be at the Maritime Museum there by the Eastport Yacht Club. There used to be a restaurant attached to the museum that was a great place to get a crabcake. I believe it was taken out by Isabelle. So I wondered if something similar had reopened. It isn't at the museum, but it is very close. I will warn you I wouldn't want to drive a big car down Second Street in Eastport and the parking situation is pretty much, "be creative." But it was definitely an i
  13. Casey's crabs does a pretty good fish and chips, too. Been awhile since I've had it though. Their price on lobsters at times is fantastic.
  14. I need suggestions for crab shacks/houses/dives/restaurants on the water within an hour and a half of DC. Cantler's is obvious but given that it is commission weekend I am going to assume it will be crazier than normal. Capt. Billy's in Pope Creek, Md., my usual go to, only has smalls and mediums this week. What's left? --- Harris Crab House (DeanGold)
  15. I'm doing my best to herd cats and get a bunch of friends and family together for my brother's birthday on Saturday. Someone in the group suggested Cantlers. I've always wanted to go, but I envisioned a hot day in August crackin crabs and drinkin beer. Would you go at this time of the year? Anything to recommend? Any pitfalls to avoid?
  16. I was heading down Route 50 from Arlington Landromat picking up my $1/pound Wash-and-Fold, and thinking I'd find some Pho. Instead, I turned right into what I believe is Willston Center (please PM me if I'm wrong), thinking I'd find something Latino (posole) or Vietnamese (Pho) for a medium-heavy, late lunch after a workout. I saw New Orleans Cajun Seafood (in the same general area as Mark's Duck House, and figured, well, why not?) This is a stark operation, dominated by an extremely long counter, and a loquacious, friendly order-taker who seemed as excited about this business as she could po
  17. Here's extreme advance notice about NH's regional foods Chesapeake Bay “Crab Boil.” We're passing up Restaurant Week this year to give you this Blue Crab Special. A three-course dinner: Chilled Gazpacho followed by three steamed Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs, Virginia Little Neck Clams, sausage by a local charcuterie, poached shrimp, farm-fresh corn on the cob and bliss potatoes. Not crazy about crabs? Substitute Louisiana-style BBQ ribs, slow-cooked meaty baby backs. For dessert, you choose: Market Peach Cobbler with homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream or Angel Food Cake with macerated berries. B
