Beacon Tavern has announced the return of its Maryland Blue Crab Boil.
In season from late April through early Fall, Maryland Blue Crabs are sometimes called the “pride of the Chesapeake.” They have a rich, slightly sweet flavor and meatier texture, making them one of summer’s most sought-after foods. When prepared by Beacon Tavern, the seafood becomes part of a group dining experience.
The crabs are served alongside a generous portion of garlic sausage, corn on the cob, red potatoes, house-made cherry pie, and (for a limited time) a bucket of ice-cold beer and French Rosé for $100 per person.
Nestled behind the Wrigley Building, the Beacon Tavern offers al fresco dining in a quiet nook steps away from the Magnificent Mile for up to six guests per table. In the event of rain, parties will be moved inside, directly next to the restaurant’s open, full-length windows.
