But after moving to Brooklyn, she was dismayed to discover that if she wanted freshly steamed Blue crab, Dungeness crab, or Alaskan Snow crab she had to go to a fish market and cook it herself. She found a kindred spirit in record label exec Gwen Woods, whose father is from the Chesapeake Bay area, so even though neither had run a restaurant before, they teamed up and opened The Crabby Shack in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood in 2014. The bright and friendly Crabby Shack has since become a cornerstone of the community, serving up super-fresh crab and lobster rolls, spicy steamed shrimp, crab mac & cheese, and a variety of fresh crabs steamed in beer and dunked in their famous seasoned garlic butter. Brooklyn’s best crabs are now shipping nationwide!
