An ideal crabby lunch--Woodhouse

We had lunch at Woodhouse Fish Company today. Yum. For another few days, they're doing dungeoness madness, with a fresh whole crab for $12. It comes with a bib, lemon wedges, clarified butter, and a bit of superfluous slaw.

I highly recommend hitting them up for lunch; we arrived at 11:45 and watched the crabs get dragged in a few minutes later. These crabs were feisty--it's hard to find fresher crab anywhere. They were out of crab Friday night at 8 PM when we tried to eat dinner, so lunch is a much safer bet.

My better half had the inspired idea to order a plate of fries, under the theory that a place that fries as much as they do must change the oil at minimum after dinner each night, and he was right. They were amazing. We also had some cooked and cleaned crab from Bryan's Thursday night. At $6 a pound, it sure makes a tasty instant dinner. The quality from Bryan's was higher, but that could just be the specific crabs in each batch.
