Behold Brooklyn Crab, the palatial new seafood "shack" that just opened in Red Hook, brought to you by the owners of the sweet rooftop Mexican joint Alma. With free shuttle buses running from the Carroll Street F/G stop to Brooklyn Crab, it's a safe bet this place is going to be booming this summer. In addition to the wide-ranging seafood and bar menu, Brooklyn Crab also boasts mini-golf, bocce, and "cornhole," also known as bean bag toss. Take a look around through the lens of photographer Sam Horine.
What more can we tell ya'? They've got Blue Crabs, Jonah crabs, shrimp, salads, oysters, lobsters, creamed spinach, corn on the cob, clams, a variety of salads, Strip Steak, pork chops, fried chicken, surf & turf, hamburgers, and—for $98—the Brooklyn Crab Royale: 1 1/2 Lb. Lobster, 1/2 Lb. King Crab Legs, 1/2 Lb. Snow Crab Legs, 2 Jonah Crabs, Corn on the Cob & Red Potatoes. Horine tried it yesterday, compliments of the house, and declared it "awesome." Nice work if you can get it! (For what it's worth, there is some Yelping about the prices.)
