Summer is for crab eatin’ in D.C.

Cappy’s Crabs is the place to go to get big meaty crabs for a backyard feast at home or enjoy one at the restaurant. This is a temporary restaurant project spearheaded by Johnny Spero, former Minibar chef. The restaurant is located at 828 Upshur St NW, Washington DC in a space that was home to the elegant French/Japanese fusion restaurant Crane & Turtle. Now it has been transformed into a Chesapeake Bay crab house with picnic tables.

The menu is full of longtime summer faves. It features classic Maryland Blue Crabs with comfort-food side items like hush puppies, cornbread, and potato salad. There are steamed clams, pick and peel shrimp, crab cake sandwiches, Old Bay fries, grilled oysters and more. Eat-in or take away crabs.

The place has all the makings of a Maryland crab shack. It’s a spot where you can enjoy a good time with a table full of crab and a bucket full of Natty Boh tallboys. Cappy’s opened in May and is becoming a local favorite for its hometown, summer feel. There are happy hour specials, music, Orange Crush and National Bohemian beer. Hurry, this is a pop-up restaurant and will be gone when the summer ends!

Regular hours of operation will be 5-10 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, noon-10 p.m. Saturday and noon-4 p.m. Sunday.
