A Three Pound Crab Feed for the Summer Bucket List


Downtown Seattle has so much to celebrate this summer. For every day that passes, bits and pieces of the viaduct chip away and remind us of the exciting views and upgrades to come to our waterfront. While we wait for the transformation to come full circle, the Seattle waterfront’s eclectic food scene is already celebrating a new revival worth experiencing. Most recently? Chef Nick Novello has re-imagined the classic crab feed at The Crab Pot, with a Royal Crab Feast on the menu all Summer long. Add this meal to your summer wish-list, all three pounds of it.

Bib up for this feast boasting an impressive variety of this tasty crustacean including - Alaskan bairdi, Alaskan king crab and Dungeness - complete with red jacketed potatoes, fresh corn, andouille sausage and head-on shrimp ($54.95 per person/minimum two orders.)
