Beginning in March, Waterfront Seafood Grill honors the Northwest’s most beloved crustacean with its annual “The Cult of the Crab” promotion, featuring a special menu of crab sourced from sustainable wild fishing practices.

This season’s delectable dream team includes: Maryland Lump and Soft Shell Blue Crab - from Maryland and Chesapeake Bay; King Crab - from Hokkaido Bay in Japan, the Barents Sea and Alaska’s Bering Sea; Dungeness Crab - a Pacific coast mainstay; Maine Peekytoe Crab - rock crab from Maine.

"All but the Hokkaido Bay King Crab are U.S.-caught, keeping the carbon footprint low, and all are harvested within state, federal and international fishing guidelines," said Frank Ragusa, General Manager for Ocean Beauty Seafoods. "Those guidelines regulate when, how much, what size and which gender of each species of crab can be harvested in order to ensure a strong spawning biomass."

The live crabs will be delivered six days a week, and then prepared on site to tender, succulent perfection. Special temptations created by Executive Chef Peter Levine include:

A Fancy Little Crab Louie ($12)
asparagus, tomato, egg, olives, Dungeness crab, Louie dressing
