Here’s a question? Do you think crabs look at us and think we walk sideways?
Something to ponder on when you head to Fancy Crab, perhaps slightly morbidly as the crab will be on your plate. Having just opened on Wigmore Street, Fancy Crab is pretty self-explanatory…it’s crab and it’s fancy. The crab in question is Red King Crab, one of the most sought after in the world, always wild, never farmed, check out that for a line, ‘Hey, I’m Red King Crab, always wild, never farmed’. You know it’d be a cool crab.
You’ll find the crab in crab salad, tempura crab claws, a spicy king crab burner and Singapore chilli crab. If crab isn’t your thing, then you can eat tuna tartare, dressed oysters or even whole chicken cooked inside a charcoal Bertha and a Fancy Crab beef burger.
Fancy Crab, may be fancy, but it’s not pretentious, split across two floors with 125 covers, it has green, velvet booths – fancy, but also has playful pictures of crabs on the walls – not pretentious. It’s just balancing things out.
