Seafood

Cappy’s Crabs is a "temporary restaurant" helmed by former Minibar chef Johnny Spero. The menu, inspired by Spero’s backyard crab feasts growing up, is that of a classic Maryland crab shack: hard shell crabs, crispy fish and crab cake sandwiches, po’ boy sandwiches, classic sides (think Old Bay fries and slaw), and plenty of raw bar staples like grilled oysters, peel n’ eat shrimp, and crab dip. And let’s be honest… there’s not much that screams summer in DC more than a table full of crabs and a bucket of Natty Boh tallboys.
