The Boiling Crab

The seafood chain from California specializes in the ultimate in casual dining: eating with your hands and wearing a bib. There’s more than just crab at the Boiling Crab. In fact, if it’s in a shell and comes from the ocean, they’ll steam it and douse it in butter, garlic and any combination of their spicy Cajun and lemon-pepper seasonings. Then roll up your sleeves and get down and dirty. Tear into a plastic bag filled with your choice of crustacean, and become one with your most primal instincts, ripping heads from bodies, peeling shells and sucking out juices. Don’t worry if you feel like a complete savage; the bib totally makes you look dignified.
