Obrycki's

Went there twice last week (I was in Baltimore for a conference) and was very impressed with the crabs. The crab spice is definitely non-traditional--the pepper is very strong, but what is the herb that they use?

We had the large variety and I have never had such meaty, tasty crabs. They cost $42 a dozen but I could only manage to eat six crabs.....

For starters, I can recommend the fried calamari which comes with a light and fresh tomato dipping sauce. I also shared a soft-shell platter and, while good, they couldn't hold a candle to Full Kee's best efforts.

The Yeungling on tap was quite nice, but I found the Obrycki's house beer bitter and unpleasant.

I will go back....
