Despite some initial negative press, Brooklyn Crab continues to press on. It might just be the crowds lined up and down the block, or the million dollar view of the Hudson from its sun deck on the second floor. Or, maybe it's the seafood steam pots overflowing with lobster, blue claws and shrimps shipped in from the Gulf. Any way you slice it, Brooklyn Crab is a gold mine and a newly-minted Brooklyn landmark that looks to be around for quite some time. Located in the heart of Red Hook, directly across from Fairway, you will find two floors of picnic tables packed with folks picking apart crabs while devouring all sorts of seafood. There are steamed snow crab, king crab, Maryland crab cakes and blue crabs sold by the dozen. But it's not just crab. You will also find lobster, steamed or grilled, little necks, fried Ipswich clams and Virginia fried oysters. In fact there is just about anything and everything a fish lover could ever want. Sure prices can be a bit steep. But the range of prices lets you manage the bill. And if the wait is long, grab a beer and play a game of miniature golf out back as you get ready for your seafood feast. Brooklyn Crab is also providing shuttle service from the F and G trains. Check their website for details. -Thomas Rafael
