Business Dinner with Maryland blue crab?

DCLindsey | Jun 4, 2012 11:13 AM

I just moved from DC (boo) but am coming back for business (yay!). I need to plan a business dinner for 5, including one very demanding person. Since we are in DC, he believes we should have some "Chesapeake bay blue crabs" as his family lived in Maryland in the 1800s. (note: he is generally demanding, not just on this issue, which makes this all the more annoying!)

I called DC Coast and they have soft shell crab on the menu, and Elisir has an entree with soft shell crab. Any other thoughts for how I can please this person? I need a reasonably formal restaurant, but not too over the top. For example, Brasserie Beck is too casual, Marcel's is too formal.

Thanks for your help!
