Baltimore is known for outdoor dining, steamed Old Bay crabs, and sitting by the water. At Nick’s, you can do all three. I joined one of my besties and her parents for her birthday and a table full of crabs.
These were a combo of larges and mediums. All steamed up and then covered in spicy old bay. These guys were perfectly done and had a ton of sweat, juicy crab meat. I somehow managed not to nick my fingers on their sharp edges; good thing since that Old Bay stings. I like that they don’t have a heavy season on the meat, so you can taste the crab. I dunked it in the old bay crumbs with a little vinegar or butter; we had both.
And what goes better with these delicate little creatures – a bucket of beer. In this case, we went with corona. Not always my favorite – but hey, I wasn’t the birthday girl.
