Bar Pilar Gets Crackin’ With Crab Nights

It’s summer, which means heat waves, beach tans and, arguably the most fun, crab boils.

To celebrate the bounty of fresh summer seafood, Bar Pilar is throwing down some brown paper and bringing back its blue crab dinners.

Starting today, bring your best mallet-pounding skills to Bar Pilar every Tuesday throughout the summer.

At the 14th Street eatery, chef and Baltimore native Justin Bittner will offer a $60 crab feast fit for two that includes 10 crabs, which have been boiled in cider vinegar, water and Old Bay, two sides and dessert. Depending on availability, diners can choose from steamed corn on the cob, shrimp with mussels, cornbread, housemade slaw or potato salad.


Looking for more places to crack crabs? Here are seven spots this side of the Bay Bridge.
