Cajun-style crustacean feasts are the focus of this Lower East Side dive. Instead of adhering to Louisiana tradition, the crabs, lobsters and crawfish are boiled and then tossed in plastic bags to coat every crevice with the house sauce of garlic butter, lemon pepper and Old Bay. Peel yours at communal tables or take to the bar for a plate of raw oysters and littlenecks. Domestic brews from Ommegang and Sixpoint breweries are represented here, as well as New Orleans fave Abita.
