A friend of mine is coming to visit next week for her birthday, and her birthday dinner wish is for crab. Maybe other shellfish, but crab is the ideal. I know it's not in season, but hey, it's her birthday, and a big one, and it's what she wants, so I'd like for her to have a good birthday dinner. My standard seafood places are not what she would want -- Sea Salt might be a little too fancy foodwise for her, and raw is no go, so no Bar Crudo, Hog Island, etc. (and Aqua is way out of the price range, plus I don't like the food there, and I know that she wouldn't). All I can think of is Crustacean, but there must be something else out there. San Francisco (and accessible by public transportation) or anywhere in Berkeley/Oakland or nearabouts is fine. East Bay is probably better, but I'm flexible. Thanks for any suggestions, they are much appreciated.
