Raleigh area for MD blue crabs??

Anyone know of a Triangle restaurant offering MD crabs?

  1. Do you specifically mean crabs from Maryland, or do you mean steamed crabs that you crack and pick yourself (even if they aren't from MD)? I don't think the latter exists in the Triangle.

    1. Blue crab is the largest fishery in North Carolina. Not sure why you would want to import them from Maryland.

      1. They are not in Raleigh but if consider a road trip:

        1. Fishmonger's in Durham has had them in the past -- give them a call. I only wish they served hushpuppies.

          1. Carolina dawg - either kind of steamed crabs would be great. I did pull up Backfins menu and gave them a call - pretty expensive but maybe worth it. Thanks to all.
