Garlic crabs?

I have the biggest craving for garlic crabs!!! I used to go to this place in Florida where you would get a big steaming bowl of crabs drenched in garlic & butter, and a side of parlsey potatoes, served family style.The tables were covered in newspapers & they'd give you a little hammer to crack the crabs. Does such a place in NYC exist?

  1. Sounds heavenly. Reminds me of the delicious crab I used to eat in California. Considering the fact that Manhattan is an island you would think there would be seafood galore. Everyone always talks about the best seafood being at City Island. You might want to start there.
