Crabs in DC? (Actual DC, not MD)
Does anyone know where to get crabs in the district? I love them but am not trucking out to MD.
Well assuming you mean blue crabs and not Dungeness, stone, etc....Dancing Crab in Tenleytown. But I wouldn't bother. Captain White's Seafood City down at the docks. Haven't been so I can't vouch for them. No seating other than picnic tables outside - not my idea of fun in this weather, but if you like the heat...there are other places at the Maine Ave Fish Market.
I live in Maryland (close in). I truck for crabs. At the current prices, I want the best and the best means getting in the car. But that's ok. We make an event out of it.
I'm guessing you mean trucking out to the Bay. There are options close in but not in DC proper (aside from those Just Visiting listed).
Steamers in Bethesda; and I think there's another place in Bethesda.
The Quarterdeck near Ft. Myer (behind-ish from the Iwo Jima)
Capt. Pells in Fairfax.
Not sure, but American Seafood in Arlington may sell them live.
Oh, and I think the tourist hole down by the wharf sells them, too, but I've only gone once there and that was over a decade. Phillips.
