PARK SLOPE — Louisiana-style seafood restaurant, Shaking Crab, is expanding to Park Slope, where patrons will be able to sink their teeth into spreads of snow crab, shrimp, and corn on the cob.
"It’s a fun, messy adventure," said Jaffar Hamilton, Shaking Crab's New York City brand manger. "We give you gloves and bibs, no one is on their phones. It's just good food and bonding."
The new outpost is replacing the recently shuttered Dizzy's on Fifth on the corner of Fifth Avenue and President Street and will be the city's third Shaking Crab location, with the first two in the Upper West Side and Flushing — the original got its start in Massachusetts.
When the restaurant opens in around six months, seafood lovers will be able to dig into seafood combo bags by the pound, an array of crab, and traditional Louisiana po' boy sandwiches.
All the beers on tap will be craft brews that Hamilton is in the process of selecting, he said.
Come nightfall management aims to convert the eatery into a bar lounge, something it does not do at the other two locations, and will be opening with a full liquor license, said Hamilton.
"Park Slope has a certain type of nightlife and we feel this will fit in well."
