When in Virginia Beach, VA

Mimi Sheraton likes the crabs in Virginia Beach (a couple of hours south of Washington, DC) ... Chick's Oyster Bar ... Virginia Seafood Company's South End Pub ... Lucky Star ... Croakers Neighborhood Grill ... Coastal Grill ...

Beautiful eating, however, is the lure for me whenever I am beside the Chesapeake shores, in my experience the source of the world 's pearliest and most toothsome crab meat. ... As with lobsters when I am in Maine and oysters in Brittany, it was crabs that I built my daily meals on a recent five-day quest in Virginia Beach.

We'll have to check one of these out the next time we're in Virginia Beach for a soccer tournament ... see the article for restaurant addresses, hours and web links ...
