Sacre Bleu! Crustacean OK

Coachboy | Sep 30, 2003 10:39 PM

I was invited to a business lunch today at Crustacean in BH. On my previous, also busines related, visits I was always disappointed...and happy I wasn't paying!

So today, with great trepidation, I went to lunch. The service was impecabble.

My host ordered a bunch of apps, all fairly good: calamari, shrimp, dumplings, sate. Nothing mind blowing or truly memorable, but certainly decent - especially if I had drinking :^)

My entree of Lobster on the "special noodles", which had previously been dry and dull, was really TASTY. Suculent, perfectly cooked lobster (1 1/2 lbs) on top of some flavorful noodles.

No desert or coffee. A couple ice teas. The tab was 120+tip.

Overpriced...absolutely. However, its BH for christ's sake.

I wouldn't drop my own hard earned $$$ on this joint, but it's fun when someone else is paying.

And the scene at night doubles the pleasure.
