Never Had Crab Before?
If you’ve never had crab before, never fear! But might we suggest you bring along a friend who has had one before? Biting into that first delicious bit of crab meat is a delightful experience, but you’ve got to get to it first.
If no one in your party has experience, don’t be afraid to flag down your waiter and ask ‘em how it’s done. Trust us, you’re not the first!
