Description: 15th Annual Get Crackin’ Crabfest Menu Back at London Lennie’s - Queens’ King of Fish Travels to Alaska, Delivers 8LB FRESH Crabs From Crate to Plate - Scheduled to step fresh off the boat from Alaska this fall, London Lennie’s culinary team, led by seafood expert and restaurateur Leslie Barnes, is not coming home empty handed! Just like last year’s trip to Alaska, the London Lennie’s fishermen will transport eight pound tender crabs from crate to plate and serve up hand-picked, succulent crab on London Lennie’s 15th Annual Get Crackin’ Crabfest Menu which debuts on October 17th and available through November 13th. Over 1.5 million tons of crab is consumed across the world each year, however, most diners never get to savor the true flavor of fresh crabmeat straight from the sea. London Lennies’ specialty menu will carry the crabulous flavor of fresh Alaskan King Crab to Queens, so city diners don’t need to travel cross continent to get their fix. Guests can select from six different species of crab, including Live Blue Claw, Live Dungeness Crab, Fresh Alaskan Crab, Fresh Jonah Crab, Fresh Stone Crab and Canadian Snow Crab, on the extensive menu which offers over 20 crab-filled dishes such as Jonah crabmeat quesadilla, crabmeat stuffed mushrooms and steamed crab and shrimp dumplings. “Even though four million crabs per year are pulled from the ocean, it’s nearly impossible to get your hands on a fresh crab in New York City. All city seafood lovers have to do is crawl to Queens!” comments London Lennie’s owner, Leslie Barnes. Also back by popular demand is the Bloody Lennie “Crabfest Style” cocktail. London Lennies’ twist on the traditional Bloody Mary combines their famous Bloody Mary mix and Stolichnaya Vodka and is garnished with a skewer of jumbo lump crabmeat. Offered throughout the crab season, the Bloody Lennie “Crabfest Style” will be available at the bar and in the dining room for $11. Highlights from this year’s crabtastic menu include: Appetizers - Jonah Crabmeat Quesadilla, caramelized onions, monetary jack cheese, roasted poblano chiles and smokey guacamole; Crabmeat Stuffed Mushrooms Trio, Dungeness crab, Jonah crab & blue claw crab Steamed Crab and Shrimp Dumplings, two sauces.
