The restaurant group that owns Shi and Skinny’s Cantina will be re-opening the Waterfront Crabhouse in LIC that sits at the end of Borden Avenue. While we don’t know about the timing or details, we hear it will continue with the seafood theme and possibly the name in some sort of iteration.
The Crabhouse, which opened back in 1977, was closed this February soon after the original owner passed away. Despite undergoing extensive renovations due to Hurricane Sandy, it retained its cluttered nostalgic look, which featured lots of boxing memorabilia. Might a gut renovation be in the works?
