Crab Tavern City is a seafood restaurant and bar that boasts a menu that merges New York style with classic west coast American fare. Choose from an abundance of hero crab dishes, rolls and salads, as well as more refined dishes from the classic grill and seafood selection.

The Crab Tavern menu features signature dishes like crab 'n' waffle, crab Caesar salad, and the perfect-for-sharing 'Tavern Platter': a steamy mix of crispy soft shell crab, charred corn, crab tartare, whitebait and squid. Elsewhere on the menu, discover crab-filled rolls with tastes of California, Maryland and China. The soft shell crab burger is the 'hero' dish at Crab Tavern served with Old Bay seasoned fries. If crab isn't your thing, there’s also vegetarian & non-seafood options, with dishes such as baby beetroot salad, Portobello burger & spatchcock poussin.

Dessert is an expectantly indulgent affair ranging from homemade fruit pies served with organic blueberry ice cream to the more adventurous pecan, chilli & maple tart with lime tequila sorbet. Much-loved classics including baked cheesecake, whilst sundaes are sweetly reminiscent of an American diner.

In the foodie hub of Broadgate Circle, Crab Tavern adds some American seaside glamour to the City. Liverpool Street Station is a short walk away.

    We went here for the boozy brunch and it was very boozy. I did expect to be topped up by the waiters ratehr than to ask for another drink everytime it was empty though. We had the seafood sharing platter and it was on the whole really good. Alot of food so be warned when ordering your main.

    The meet and greet was good. Was a bit disorganised as to what the £1 oyster and prosecco deal was. They should have special menu cards to promote the offer. Overall it was a nicd evening i would definitely go back.

  • (((** 29 November 2016 by Roula Kouri from City of London

    We had the Christmas set menu and picked the crab and waffle as a starter and whole crab as a main. The starter was very nice and fresh but we were quite disappointed with the main as it was very dry.

    Underwhelming. Very dark, very noisy, couldn't hear conversations at the table. Small tea light on the table that extinguished and wasn't replaced. I noticed this happened at all the tables. Food very average. I had the halibut, which was served atop of something I didn't recognise, I couldn't see it very well because it was so dark, and it didn't taste of anything either. Won't be going back. 5/10.
