gothamistMay, 2012. Jen Carlson for Gothamist. We've been keeping our eye on Brooklyn Crab, which has been building out their space in Red Hook for a little while now. The restaurant is run by the people behind the great rooftop Mexican restaurant Alma, and they haven't announced their opening date yet (but hint that it's coming "soon"). Here's what we do know so far:

  • There will be an 18 hole mini golf course
  • There will be ping pong
  • There will be a bocce court
  • There will be shuffleboard (YES!)
  • There will be a free shuttle to bring you to and from the subway
  • There will be a giant shark
  • There will be two stories, and some outdoor seating
  • There will be blue crabs, jonah crabs, shrimp, salads, oysters, lobsters, creamed spinach, corn on the cob, clams, and more on the menu

Their hours will be Sunday through Thursday, 4 to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 4 to 11 p.m. Keep updated via their Twitter @BrooklynCrab.
