Wednesday night, ANC6C will consider a recommendation by its Committee on Alcohol Beverages to support a liquor license for The Boiling Crab, which expects to open at 400 H Street, NE, in January. A motion to support is likely to sail through the committee.
Representatives of The Boiling Crab informed commissioners at last Monday night’s ABC Committee meeting that serving spirits is not in their business plan, nor is providing service beyond 10:00pm. ANC6C Commissioner Joel Kelty raised concerns about the plan to make the main entrance on 4th Street, since the city requires it to be on 8th Street, and about noise on summer nights from the second story retractable windows. These and other concerns, including trash management seemed likely to be worked out in a Settlement Agreement placing conditions on the restaurant’s operations before Wednesday’s meeting of the full ANC. The ANC’s support is conditioned on the Settlement Agreement being reached before the vote.
The Boiling Crab is a casual, family-friendly restaurant specializing in Louisiana-style Cajun seafood. The chain has locations in California, Texas, Las Vegas, South Miami, Honolulu, and Shanghai, with plans to expand domestically and internationally.
