In Philadelphia, where Fifi grew up, crabs are a popular fare. Every neighborhood in Philly has a few crab places serving up – steamed and seasoned to perfection – Blue crab, Dungeness crab, and Alaskan Snow crab. Not so in New York. Fifi found herself frequenting the market in order to make them herself. Preparing crab perfection became a passion and it became a dream to open a restaurant dedicated to serving delicious crabs in Brooklyn!
