My birthday was Sunday, and Andrew surprised me with dinner at River Crab. Little back-story apparently this was the place he wanted to take me on our first “real” date, but they had a private event that night so he had to get creative and come up with a different place. I guess my birthday presented him with the perfect opportunity to bring me there. First let me start by saying if you love the water and seafood, this is definitely the place for you. The view was absolutely stunning, and we even watched a freighter go by. So let’s get to the good stuff… the food….
If you know A and I you know we hardly ever pass up dessert. When you celebrate your birthday at River Crab they hook you up with their homemade Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée, which consist of smooth and creamy custard with real vanilla bean and a caramelized sugar crust. A asked the waiter if he could find a candle so I could make a birthday wish and he came back with a pink one – even the waiter knew my favorite color – ha. This Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée was the BEST crème brûlée that I have EVER had, and I have had it made right in front of me by a fancy pants French pastry chef in New Orleans before. If you go to the River Crab I highly recommend ordering it for dessert, you will not regret it and you can thank me later.
