Shaking Crab - Upper West Side was established in April 2017. Located right down the street from Columbia University, this location includes lunch and dinner every day.

Shaking Crab began as a lunch craving for fresh New England shellfish and bold Cajun flavors in the spring of 2015. Kevin and Nick, co-workers in a downtown Boston office, frequently lunched together in a quest to fulfill a mutual love of spicy and fragrant foods.

One day, Nick returned from a trip to California and excitedly described his favorite meal of the trip: a crab boil with shrimp, crab legs and crawfish, all drenched in a rich, garlicky, and spicy sauce. Kevin, raised in California, immediately recognized the crab boils that his friends and family would have for summer cook-outs and the routine outings at boil restaurants. Unfortunately, crab boils were not an option in Boston at the time despite the high quality and adoration of New England shellfish.

Our goal is to spread the love of buttery, garlicky, spicy shellfish throughout New York, New England and beyond. You have an opportunity to experience our crab boil where seafood is served up piping hot in a bag smothered in buttery garlicky cajun seasonings. We shake up all the flavorful sauces and serve it to you with gloves, tools and a bib!
