Someone just asked me, 'Don, if you were to buy steamed crabs around these parts, where would you go?' I didn't have an answer, and then it dawned on me ... there's this website called dr.com. Anyone have any ideas?

Somewhere on Maine Avenue? Seafood In The Buff?

I get them from Cameron's Seafood. The usually have a coupon in the Post food section. With a copy of the ad, a bushel of crabs was only $40 last week.

I used to get crabs regularly at the Wheaton Seafood in the Buff, but that was a few years ago. They might steam fresh on the weekends, but when I'd go after work, they would re-heat cooked crabs in some sort of steam cabinet (yes, you'd get a few overcooked crabs in each dozen).

Now I make the run up to Frank's Seafood at the wholesale market in Jessup. They often have cold cooked #2 males, which they call $1 crabs and I call "lunch".

I've had good luck with the Wheaton Seafood in the Buff. I usually go around mid-day on a Saturday and get a dozen of the largest they have, which are always freshly steamed, never re-heated. The crabs are nicely seasoned and they do a good job of packing the order to go. We eat a few for lunch and pick the rest to make crab cakes later in the week.
