The highly recommended crabs, that is, at the Seaside Restaurant in Glen Burnie, MD, close by BWI. The service is great and the ambience just what you want from a place that will wrap your table in brown paper and bring you a load of filter feeders and a mallet. And beer.

They put the spice rub on the shell, so when you pull it apart you get the spices on your fingers, and when you pick out the meat you get the spices on the meat. A fine system.

My brother and I happened to have a chance to visit and partake last week.
