The Harlem branch of this Maryland-style crab house is long gone, while the Clinton Hill carryout tanked more recently. But this intrepid chain has grown a new branch, sandwiched between Flatlands and Marine Park. The shrimp boil is as good as ever-eight big beauties rubbed with a spicier version of Old Bay seasoning and steamed just long enough that they remain tender and sweet. Consistent with the name, there are several types of crab available, cooked by the same method as the shrimp, and an extensive menu of fried seafood and Jamaican standards like escovitched fish.
