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.

Beverages are also locally sourced. A “bucket o' beer” with brews from local breweries. Horton Viognier and Chatham Vineyard's unoaked Church Creek Chardonnay by the bottle and the glass, both highly touted Virginia wines. There's a perfect Crab gin in West Virginia's Smooth Ambler.

For a long time, NH has had its eye on a summer food event showcasing Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs. It's here! Monday, August 13 through Sunday the 19th. The price for the three-course dinner is $38.00 per person; all beverages charged separately.
