Antica Pesa Opening in Williamsburg; Taste the Future at Ginny’s Supper Club

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse kicks off its stone crab claw season next week. From October 17 to May 17, dine on stone crab claws flown all the way from the Florida Keys, served as appetizers, entrées, or paired with steak. And you don’t have to feel that bad for the crabs: Claws are harvested from the crustaceans, who are then thrown back into the sea to generate new ones. [Grub Street]
