Two Women, Passionate for Crabs
FIFI BELL – CLANTON
In Philadelphia, where Fifi grew up, crabs are a popular fare. Many neighborhoods have crab places serving up 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!
Gwen grew up with a family tradition of crab. Her father is from the Chesapeake Bay area and as a treat for the family, always brought crabs back after visiting his home.
Like Fifi, Gwen was also frustrated by the severe lack of crab in New York. It was one night at a dinner party at Gwen’s house when Fifi brought up the idea of opening a crab restaurant. A year later The Crabby Shack was born.
