According to a commenter on LICtalk, the Crabhouse on Borden Avenue will hold a soft opening this Saturday. Through back channels, we didn’t get a denial of the rumor, which is enough for our less-than-esteemed publication to run with. From the look of the picture above, snapped today, it appears they’ve dropped the ‘Waterfront’ from the title and will call it the Crabhouse Restaurant. While they’re also maintaining the ‘Established’ date as 1976, the interior has undergone a complete renovation, and my guess is the menu has as well under its new management by Skinny of Skinny’s Cantina. Thus the only question that remains is, can you get soft-shell crabs at the soft opening?
