Back Forty - Crab Boil (A Disappointing Experience)

bss25 | Jun 3, 200908:05 AM     12

My GF and I went last night for the season's first crab boil at Back Forty and were pretty disappointed and underwhelmed with the quality of the crabs. While the price tag was right ($40), the preparation and flavor of the crabs wasn't very good - having grown up in Baltimore, picking crabs is a summer tradition which led me to have high hopes. Not the case as the crabs were extremely overcooked (except for 1 batch) to the point of being mushy and the seasoning was fairly limited. Furthermore, the crabs were on the tiny side.

Glad we went for the experience but will not be going back anytime soon.

Not sure how the crabs are at the Hideaway in Tribeca but will try over the next few weeks and report back.

Do any others have suggestions/feedback?
