Perhaps the name says it all. Fancy Crab is a London restaurant that specialises in everyone’s favourite crustacean, the red king crab. Ideal for sharing, there’s nothing quite like the primal feeling of cracking open fresh crab with your bare hands and devouring the meat like a caveman. All jokes aside – at Fancy Crab, you’ll get tools for your civilised feast and you’ll also get to pick from a menu packed with a huge range of fresh seafood. There’s even a raw bar! This place is paradise for seafood lovers, so your best bet is to book ahead of time before they beat you to it. You’ll find Fancy Crab on Marylebone’s Wigmore Street, just steps from Bond Street underground.
Foodies are flocking to Wigmore Street in droves to get to London’s Fancy Crab. Using red king crab that’s caught in the Northern Arctic ocean, this Marylebone seafood restaurant is serious about serving only the highest quality crab to its guests, and that goes for everything else on the menu too. The raw bar is another highlight here, featuring delights like salmon and bonito sashimi, tuna tartare and Pyefleet Colchester oysters serviced with mojito granita mirin, soy sauce and kizami wasabi.
At Fancy Crab in London’s Marylebone, you can enjoy your red king crab grilled over charcoal with butter and thyme or steamed and served on ice with all the trimmings. If you’re with a group, we highly recommend ordering a whole red king crab to share – it comes served with triple-cooked truffle chips, polenta fries, thyme hollandaise, greens, mushrooms and a bunch of homemade sauces for dipping. After chowing down on some of London’s best crab, head down to the basement bar to sip on bespoke cocktails and a range of draught beers. Fancy Crab is the complete package – you don’t want to miss an experience at this temple to crab on Wigmore Street. Book your table now.
