Claw and Order

Crab and mini-golf in a Red Hook clubhouse



We don't want to get you overexcited, but we just couldn't keep this one under wraps.

New York, get ready for Brooklyn Crab, a massive mecca for crustacean craziness, opening its doors in the coming weeks.

The owners — the same minds behind Cobble Hill's awesome rooftop resto Alma — are just tidying up loose ends and adding the finishing touches.

Like bocce ball courts. And 18-hole mini-golf. And giant sharks.

Of course, there will be crab, which you'll eat with a sweeping view of the East River from the BC deck. Blue, Jonah — if it's got claws, it's not safe from your maw. Then there's the raw bar with oysters, clams, shrimp. You're starting to get the picture.

Oh, and we can't forget the lobster. With Red Hook Lobster Pound up the block, BC helps solidify the neighborhood as Brooklyn's new go-to shell sector.

Since it's a bit of a schlep from Carroll St., BC's offering a free shuttle from the subway station. And for Manhattan dwellers, BC's just a few blocks from the free Ikea Water Taxi dropoff.

Nothing like shore-to-shell service.
