For a couple of months now interested parties have been following the progress of Brooklyn Crab, a giant new operation rising up across the street from the Red Hook Fairway. And today we get confirmation that the owners of Columbia Waterfront District's Mexican standby Alma are the people behind it.
The space will encompass two decks overlooking the New York Harbor, so like Alma, it should boast unrivaled views. They'll serve seafood from up and down the Atlantic coast and will offer salads, soups, sandwiches, and a raw bar. There are also rumors of miniature golf. It's unclear how long construction should take—it's a major undertaking and all of the owners all have small children—but they hope to open by this summer. Then the Fairway Cafe and the Red Hook Lobster Pound (thanks guys) won't be the only place in Red Hook to get a decent lobster roll.
