For a bounty of shellfish served seafood-boil style, drop anchor at The Captain’s Boil (page 73). This Southern-inspired spot is the place to crack into tempting Dungeness crab, lobster and crawfish, all smothered in get-messy sauces like Cajun or lemonpepper. It arrives in plastic bags—there are bibs and disposable gloves, to boot—for a fun, hands-on feast. Less messy (but still finger-licking-good) options include fresh oysters, calamari and fried shrimp, so there’s something for every matey at the table.
