eater’s digest: brooklyn crab

I’ve always been the type who is eager for fall, who looks forward to long pants, chilly outdoor evenings and the chance to take a bike ride without breaking a sweat.

That said, since the temperature dropped 20 degrees (overnight), I’ve been mourning the loss of my New York summer. And, in specific, craving a return to my favorite seafood shack, Brooklyn Crab.

Luckily, the crab shack is open year-round, given the happy heating of the upstairs deck. So now seems as good a time as ever to get a bit nostalgic. To lean back into the not-so-long-ago days of ‘yore, when we biked, boozed and bean bagged away our steamy Sundays in Red Hook.

…And to imagine another side of Brooklyn Crab. A hood-and-boots, hot toddy game of corn hole. Followed, of course, by a round of whole bellies and the impressive Brooklyn Crab Royale.

The pre-game (literally). Corn hole at Brooklyn Crab.

Enjoying some of the many boozy options on the breezy upstairs deck.

Consulting the extensive menu.

The fresh, briny house oysters.

Fried Ipswich Whole Belly Clams

The overflowing Crab Royale: lobster, king crab legs, snow crab legs, jonah crabs
