Stop #4: DC Coast
1401 K St NW; 202.216.5988
Now that you've definitely walked off those first three crabs, you'll want to get involved with Coast's Mini Tower of Crab, which just may require a tiny construction crew and miniature crane to help you pick apart the crisp soft-shell, jumbo lump crab cake, pickled okra & corn relish, and Tabasco lemon butter.
Stop #5: Occidental Grill & Seafood
1475 Pennsylvania Ave NW; 202.783.1475
Considering it's half grill and half seafood, the OC better do a soft-shell right, and, luckily, they do: sauteed jumbo soft-shell with haricots verts, shallots, and an Asian pear/grenadine coulis.
